The people are great but...

(Former Employee)
Palo Alto, CA

ProsI really believed in what the company is doing by making financial advice more egalitarian. I've met some wonderful and smart people there.

ConsDepartments have different criteria for promotions. This left you wondering why some teams were constantly promoting their people while others were not. Plus the teams are constantly being reorganized. Also there is a culture gap between the various offices that caused friction.

Advice to Senior ManagementThe flat organizational structure doesn't give people enough opportunity to continue to build their skill sets. There is not incentive to stay on if there is no where to go.
