Decent Experience

(Former Employee)

Pros- Cool technology
- Company has good brand recognition
- Every other Friday off
- Some ok perks

Cons- Lack of career development - promotions seem to be rare; some employees have been individual contributors (in the same position) for 10 years
- The Annual Review process is done hastily and not much constructive feedback is provided
- Some co-workers are brilliant and confident, whereas some of the employees are abysmal (it probably happens in all companies) - not sure how they got past HR and managerial screening
- C-level executives and VPs lack ability to inspire and motivate employees - there is no passion here

Advice to Senior Management- Work with other executives to ensure career development is taken seriously
- Provide clearer vision around career advancement and promotion opportunities
- CEO - please rally the troops

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
