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

Pros

Fitbit has an awesome work environment that is driven by making the best products out there. It's really laid back without any politics or red-tape. The culture and energy in the office contagious and keeps everyone excited to come in everyday and work on products we are all passionate about.

Cons

Everyone wears a lot of hats since we are small and growing. The hiring process is stringent since we want the best out there.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Keep innovating and keep celebrating all the amazing accomplishments!

    I worked at Fitbit full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Lots of free food, drinks and products. The CEO and CFO are good guys, and there are plenty of smart people to go around.

    Cons

    Employees are overworked and many are unhappy. For being a company that makes fitness products, there is little incentive for employees to be healthy themselves. Overcrowded, germ-ridden workspaces, long work days, and boozy happy hours reign, while there is little of funding for most athletic events, lame gym membership discounts ($5 off at the YMCA), and a general lack of work/life balance.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Check in on how employees are feeling in all departments. There is some major mismanagement bordering on abuse happening in some of them.

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

    Pros

    Fitbit is an amazing company to be a part of within the tech scene in San Francisco. Fitbit has great leaders who are very transparent in the goals and vision of the company. Everyone is tied into a great mission of building products to enhance individuals lives. The work is incredibly exciting.

    Cons

    Like any start up there is a lot of work with limited resources, but this is to be expected.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to invest in the best talent, employee appreciation incentives, and building the most innovative exciting products in this category.
