Not a good match for Silicon Valley - Avoid this place

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) Mountain View, CA

Pros- Compensation & benefits are on par with other local tech companies
- Free catered lunch every day

Cons- Extremely low quality of employees - few have any prior experience in the Valley culture - the rare talented ones who accidentally ended up here have either left quickly or are actively looking to leave as the economy improves
- Incompetent management - virtually none have tech experience or have ever worked outside the old-fashioned CPG industry - literally no clue how to run an innovative high-tech company - most never leave their offices
- No innovation - company is just a rehash of an offline idea (newspaper coupons) with no re-imagining of how to transform CPG promotions for a digital world - this is where your career will come to die
- Silo organization & no collaboration - you have never worked for a company (esp. in the Valley) with a more hierarchical structure or less cross-dept. collaboration
Clueless founders - they had an idea for starting the company 13 years ago and nothing has changed since then - they refuse to leave & won't go public because they fear losing control

Advice to Senior ManagementStop hiring only CPG industry experience for management & Sales. The company is desperately in need of new, talented staff from other smart tech companies. Founders need to go.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
