Great experience that stretches abilities

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
San Francisco, CA

Pros- Startup excitement and challenges.
- Stability and generosity of larger companies.
- Small-company environment where you can get to know your coworkers well.
- Flexible and fun culture.

Cons- For those looking for large brand names, this isn't really it. Join if you want to contribute to creating a brand name (not just be associated with existing popular brands).
- Success is never certain. If you're not able to handle uncertainty and challenges, then this isn't the place for you either.

Advice to Senior Management- Don't be afraid to take more time to evaluate and consider important decisions for the future, longer-term growth of the company.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    Good benefits but company is unorganized

    (Former Employee)
    San Francisco, CA

    I worked at StumbleUpon


    Pros: The benefits are good. Not many start ups do 401k matching, and SU does. You get lunch on Monday, Wednesday and Friday and the lunches… Cons: Communication and collaboration are. People, as well management, just make decisions and go with it. It results in bad decisions and bad code being pushed… Advice to Senior Management: The culture that is brewing at SU needs to be changed… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend More
