    Current Employee - Technical Program Manager  in  Mountain View, CA
    Current Employee - Technical Program Manager in Mountain View, CA

    Pros

    Pay is competitive, perks are average for industry. This is a product driven company, as opposed to engineering (Google or Facebook) or design (apple).

    Cons

    Expect a total frat house. Seniors and leads in the early to mid 20s. Drink the cool aid and you'll fit in. As a technical program manager, you'll likely report into an engineering manager or director, who most likely knows absolutely nothing about program or project management. Or cares about your career or what you do.
    Linkedin does not value the project or program manager role, and there is a heavy bias to engineers are all that matter. In engineering, there is roughly 1 program manager to 50 engineers and you are treated like a ,general dogs body. If you enjoy doing admin work, this is for you. The career ladder is lovely, but bears absolutely no relation to reality. There is no leveling across the organization, so career progression and promotions are entirely a draw of luck based on your department, and not skill.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Set up a centralized project management team who truly advocate for best practices and care about the discipline. Don't treat this staff like admins.

    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee  in  Mountain View, CA
    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee in Mountain View, CA

    Pros

    - Free food
    - Good health benefits

    Cons

    - Certain teams are expected to perform more
    - Bad commute
    - Pay way less than the industry average
    - Too much bureaucracy

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Start rewarding your employees more. Especially the ones that make you the most money. Also invest in those parts of the company. Ever heard of hazard pay?

    P.S. don't email every employee to get them to do a review here on Glassdoor.
