Current Employee - Anonymous Employee in San Francisco, CA

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

Pros

free food
casual work attire
great concept
happy hour on fridays

Cons

LOW NON-COMPETITIVE SALARIES
most are contract employees = no benefits, paid vaca, paid holidays or anything
huge work load
middle management is abusive and unprofessional, Sr management not willing to listen
lots of free UNHEALTHY food, odd for a fitness/wellness company
very high school mentality among younger employees who are clicky
staff who has been there longer turn their noses up at new hires, not welcoming or friendly
HR is all about cronyism and there are contract people with no skills getting paid more
be expected to work 24/7 from your phone/laptop

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Make sure that middle management is following the culture you originally created!

    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!
