Very poor representation of women and minorities in leadership

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) New York, NY

ProsVery very creative environment, very friendly, supportive staff.

ConsCurrently very very male-dominated and -oriented senior leadership team. Almost no women in power whatsoever -- very depressing. Too much overpaid senior management (far too many lame ducks abusing spending accounts while more junior staff can hard get an extra $50), WAY too much middle management/ VP bloat, too much emphasis on the buzzwords and Techcrunch outlook of the day and not a longterm strategy. Too many kids in roles they're way too junior for. Endless red tape. Very little overall focus. Goals and priorities aren't articulated, half the time you don't even know which team you're officially working on. (Not kidding). Successes of teams and wholes aren't celebrated -- only the same few individuals are celebrated.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
