Stimulating work environment but becoming more bureaucratic

Senior Product Marketing Manager (Current Employee) 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

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
