Unorganized HR department, leaves employees without answers to offers, very pretentious (not in a good way), many employees are very snooty

    Pros

    Great culture, awesome product - feels amazing to be in tech AND doing great things for the environment, too! Pre-IPO!

    Cons

    Meals provided are only every Friday, which is pretty inconvenient having to deal the riffraff, long lunch lines & smell of Market Street on a mostly daily basis. It would be more cost effective and a great perk to add daily meals into the mix so we can collaborate more and get back to work with a full belly w/o the hassle.

    Advice to Management

    Keep hiring A game players - it shows!

    Pros

    Everyone's motivated. Highly skilled and smart folks. Everyone gets a chance to prove themselves by doing great things within or outside their responsibilities.

    Cons

    Sometimes people may be stepping on each others' toes. Many young managers in the company with little people skills.
