    Current Employee - Senior Product Marketing Manager in Mountain View, CA

    Pros

    - Exciting work
    - Can see impact of your work fairly quickly
    - Accomplished colleagues
    - Great brand recognition

    Cons

    - Increasing numbers of middle managers who add no value
    - Focus on "shiny" vs. substantive work - you're more rewarded for style than substance, splashy work gets praise

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't hire middle managers who add no value. Unfortunately I see us hiring and rewarding people who spend more time on Powerpoint presentations than actually doing work. Growing pains of a large company or something we can avoid?

    Pros

    Good benefits, good infrastructure, generally reasonable coworkers.

    Cons

    Promotion by committee means it's harder to get recognized for an obscure project or brunt work maintaining important stuff than for working on 'sexy' projects.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Do something to unbreak the promotion system.
