Trying to figure it all out.

San Francisco, CA

Pros- 9/80 (every other Friday off)
- Great people to work with
- Awesome technologies and products
- Network with the best in the industry

Cons- Lot of political issues for a small organization
- Changes seem to happen constantly
- Promotions rarely happen, they usually hire "experienced" professionals outside of the company and give them Director positions

Advice to Senior ManagementYou have a wealth of knowledge and passionate individuals who want to make a difference internally, but you keep losing them because they are stuck in the same position doing the same thing for years. People try to break out and are reprimanded...Promote from within so you can keep your knowledge base and not have them go to competitors or your customers.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
