    I have been working at Fitbit full-time (more than an 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 (more than an 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.
