    Former Employee - Product Marketing Manager in San Francisco, CA
    Former Employee - Product Marketing Manager in San Francisco, CA

    Approves of CEO

    Pros

    Good compensation, hot company, build great marketing acumen, fun people, great atmosphere, emphasis on helping the community with community service

    Cons

    The politics can be bad so some people may not enjoy that environment, but you will find it anywhere you do work

    Advice to Management

    Establish clearer career paths for employees, especially the more junior employees and middle management since the firm seems pretty director-level heavy and they don't have as much upward mobility so will get frustrated by the lack of growth opportunities and leave.

    Pros

    Good work/life balance and great compensation/benefits packages. Plus the company is hungry to go big with a bang and has the cash flow to support it so you get to work with the latest and greatest technology without ever worrying about having the money to fund your idea.

    Cons

    Growing too fast and loosing it's start-up culture in the process. Unless leadership pays attention fast, the culture is going to erode into a big, slow bureaucracy. Already starting to see the coolness fading where it takes too long to launch an idea. Too many approval cycles and too much politics in "selling your idea" versus just taking a risk, experimenting, and iterating.

    Advice to Management

    Bring back the agility of a start-up culture. Hire smart, enthusiastic, passionate people and let them run with their ideas. Have tolerance for experimentation and fast iteration.
