Toxic environment

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

ProsStill a fairly profitable business; uses current technologies; very numbers / statistics driven with an infrastructure that embraces experimentation and reat-ime feedback

ConsDraconian management style of the senior leadership; dog-eat-dog culture that leads to fast burnout or being thrown under the proverbial bus. Lip service given to training - one senior leader was heard saying that training is unacceptable and that technologists should be hired already knowing current technologies! Revenue model is being completely overhauled as a reaction to Google's competitive practices - there's little indication that the bet will be successful in the long term.

Advice to Senior ManagementWhen you surround yourself with identical cutthroat personalities, you lose perspective and you end up with demoralized, afraid, and/or cutthroat personnel. In other words, you get what you model.
