Under-Resourced in a Culture driven by Criticism and Distrust.

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

ProsIndustry niche and company name recognition. Director level and below filled with good people who have great ideas, passion, commitment, execution and incredible self-sacrifice.

ConsSelf-Interest of paternalistic executives/senior leadership, who have a dismissive, condescending attitude towards the employees. High turnover/churn - people are treated as very disposable. Serious lack of work-life balance due to heavy workloads and resource constraints. Lots of internal pressure for the "next great product", plus infrastructure growing pains, plus re-orgs, plus churn, plus paternalistic leadership, make for a highly political, critical, and distrusting culture.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
