The highs and lows

Compliance Specialist (Former Employee)
Mountain View, CA

ProsThe people are the best reason to work here. I had yet to meet anyone that I would consider incompetent.

ConsCareer advancement and promotions are vague. Job titles mean nothing -- you can be doing something someone 2 levels higher is doing, but you won't get paid the same.

Advice to Senior ManagementCreate better policies around advancement and promotions. Keep people interested by giving them work that matches their strengths and values.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
