A dynamic place, with all that entails

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
San Francisco, CA

ProsThe company is an interesting place to work. The pay is good, and the hours are good. If you carve out a niche you can stay there for a while, and there is a good chance for upward movement.

ConsThere is constant change, pivots, etc. It is nominally a technology company, but it is run as a sales company that happens to be in the tech space.

Advice to Senior ManagementFocus! Also, get some technical people in upper management.
