Pros

Fast paced work environment Cool products Amazing people Entrepreneurial organization Very smart and collaborative employees The company is growing very quickly

Cons

Fast paced work environment Lack of work-life balance Compensation could be better Pace of growth might cause a loss of core culture

Advice to Management

Recognize that the days of employees motivated by share prices doubling every year are behind us. That means better compensation is needed, or more employees to balance the work loads.

    Pros

    Great products. Decent Benefits. Very stable company

    Cons

    NO work-life balance unless you are a Director or above. Awful bonus program. Compensation is below market Extremely cheap Sr. staff. They spend hundreds of thousands on holiday parties but pay people pennies when they are expected to be available 24/7 Sr staff has a very old school mentality.

    Advice to Management

    Stop being so cheap with your employees. They work their tails off yet their salaries are well below market. The bonus program is a joke. Stop pretending you are the only company in town who is hiring and therefore you don't need to make your employees happy. Your employees are starting to leave because they are tired of working 24/7

    All decisions are made by the top management, the rest are robots trained to obey.
