A great place to work but upward mobility seems less than likely

BOLD Intern (Former Employee)
Mountain View, CA

ProsStill one of the best places to work--amazing perks, a true commitment to work-life balance, incredible openness about important company information from the top-down, dedicated to providing feedback and resources to help you develop professionally, smart/friendly/driven individuals that you interact with every day

ConsBase pay is just okay; work is not easy (very sink or swim), lots of internal procedures are always changing and often confusing; difficult to maintain a balance with so many things going on at once (a diversity/chaos of activity)

Advice to Senior ManagementProviding opportunities for accelerated upward growth will help reward top talent

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
