Great company to work for

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
San Francisco, CA

ProsInteresting place to work - good variety
Clever people
Still fairly small

ConsNot so much of a family atmosphere since it floated, but understandable
It struggles with being a large enterprise, so new staff and new VPs act like we're a 20,000 person organization instead of 1,800.

Advice to Senior ManagementStill need more work to move us from a private to a public company. That's never happened so our processes/management structure suffers for it.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
