Great company but a little too much groupthink/ Kool Aid drinking

Pros

Great products. Great people. Great CEO

Cons

Too much group-think/ Kool Aid drinking. There is actually too much enthusiasm - cult like. The CEO is great, but people treat him as if he is a god. The core product and is great and Marc's clearly a visionary, but there have been a decent number of missteps that were avoidable if people were a bit more objective. And the sales productivity team is totally inane - every few months they come up with new ways of wasting our time with a stupid initiatives which just annoy the sales people.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Allow people to share their opinions anonymously so you can benefit from the wisdom of the crowd. Right now, the group think is too powerful for anyone to honestly speak their mind.
