Pros

Great people, strong individualized culture, definitely promotes work/life balance. It's a very friendly company with some smart people. Great SF city location.

Cons

Probably not as innovative as it thinks it is, which results in a lot of turnover in Engineering. Not as much accountability as you'd expect either with regards to product launches. Also groups are pretty siloed with not as much cross-depatrment communication

Advice to Management

Listen to the ranks even more. Pay better.

    Pros

    Small company Great location in the downtown San Francisco Fairly laid back work environment Very start-up like feel in that everyone sat in a cube including VPs

    Cons

    Poor salary Job role not well-defined, not well-respected No career advancement opportunities beyond Senior Producer Reporting structure was conflict of interest and made it impossible to do job effectively

    Advice to Management

    Pay people market value and define roles more clearly.
