    I have been working at Financial Engines full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    The culture we used to have

    Cons

    New members are brought into executive management and mistreat company employees and values. If you didn't grow with the company what write do you have to treat people the way you do? FE is/was a good company built on real core beliefs that if you do not have, you shouldn't be allowed to join the company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Fire Chung and only hire leaders people respect and that share company core values

    I have been working at Financial Engines full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    - Nice office environment
    - People are generally nice and friendly
    - Salary for product marketing seems competitive
    - Flexibility to work from home (occasionally) when needed
    - Generous PTO in first year and building the longer you stay
    - For some teams, getting money to run programs is easy

    Cons

    - Upper level leadership gets side-tracked easily
    - Management is always looking for the "silver bullet" and is uninterested in anything else
    - in 2014, there's a complete lack of focus and total chaos in product development

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop with the whiplash.
