Pros

Working Environment: fun, fast-paced, opportunity to travel Free food on most days somewhere in the office Great office space

Cons

Low salary. Had to leave because it just wan't competitive enough. Promotions are based on who you are friends with-- not merit based. People in leadership never move-- and often have no idea what they are doing.

Advice to Management

Better, competitive salary. Leadership needs to actually lead-- not be a part of the cool kids group.

    Pros

    Unique office and great cafe

    Cons

    Change is rapid not allowing for solid execution and leaves incomplete work in its wake. Too many things left unbaked and projects churn ineffectively. Culture isn't the best when grooming the company for efficient growth

    Advice to Management

    Specific to my department...eliminate micro managing and trust the talent you hired to do the work they know how to do.
