Current Employee - Firmware Engineer  in  San Francisco, CA
Current Employee - Firmware Engineer in San Francisco, CA

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

Pros

* Wonderful group of people to work with in firmware. It is like a team of the top people you'd find if you were working at other companies.
* Laid back culture.
* Close to most major transit in the Bay Area.
* Fun problems to solve.
* Upper management feels accessible and has an engineering background.

Cons

* Seems like there's always more work to do. This may or may not be a bad thing.
* Office is a bit cramped right now, but will be moving to a bigger office soon.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Keep up the good work. Take a vision and run with it.

    Pros

    Cool product. Nice people.

    Cons

    Operationally dysfunctional and lack of exec leadership. Bringing in talented people and cannot retain them.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If you are going to hire and build a team, than be committed to Lead, otherwise step aside and move on.

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

    Pros

    Some really challenging problems.
    Really great team: smart, motivated, friendly, encouraging.
    A really exciting space to be in at the moment (wearables).

    Cons

    The company has grown past the tiny stage and has turned into a very legitimate company. That means roles are starting to become less dynamic. That can be a pro for some people though.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep on keepin on. Continue to hire for the cultural fit. Continue to work with the teams and people that don't mesh as well.
