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

Pros

Fitbit is the leading consumer fitness technology company. The ideals of the brand are observable in the company culture. The work/life balance is refreshing. Everyone is passionate about helping people be more active and make healthier choices. As an engineer, I appreciate how pleasant the product designers and managers are to work with.

Cons

A large monolithic code base and explosive growth make software engineering more difficult and slower than it should be. There is great hesitation and unreasonable skepticism towards anything that's not Java-based.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Management should be more transparent about product roadmap and do regular Q&A with the company.

    Pros

    It's awesome to work on a product that I use daily. The people are great too, willing to help and nice.
    Management is very trusting. Employees know where the company is and where it is going. The work environment is pretty relaxed- I play ping pong pretty much every day in the office.

    Cons

    The office is split into two floors which can be annoying sometimes.

    Pros

    It is a young company, and therefore the energy around the office is certainly positive.

    Cons

    Too many to list. Underpaid, no training, horrible middle management, broken promises.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop adding so many additional levels of management and focus on keeping the people that you do have happy. Or you're about to start losing many more.
