They do really care about employees

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) San Francisco, CA

ProsTons of PTO, great work/life balance, and low-stress environment. Very comprehensive health insurance (though you pay ~30% of the premium). Most employees are very passionate about the organization and its product.

ConsEmployee passion can translate into lower salaries. Raises are difficult to come by due to tightly controlled HR/review protocal. Though some employees are very successful at moving to different departments, others have had difficulty or are at a salary disadvantage when moving internally. My department was never allowed to work from home or flex hours--this is not the case in the whole organization.

Advice to Senior ManagementLove the PTO. Some consideration of how to develop and retain talent is probably due.

– I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
