Good culture - but be wary!

Finance Department (Current Employee)
South San Francisco, CA

ProsGreat start up feel for such a huge organization. Middle management teams are decent and tend to be hard working and supportive of their direct reports. The pay is market consistent and benefits include free lunch 3 days a week, on site gym and shuttle service. Facilities are beautiful!

ConsUpper management is terrible, not interested in employee satisfaction or human asset retention. Lars is almost unbearable as a CEO and has lost touch with the reality of who is actually doing the work to support the company. He spends more time name dropping and talking about his private helicopter than paying attention to the actual company. Contractors are not turned over to employees because it pads the per capita revenue numbers.

Advice to Senior ManagementHire people! You lose the best of the bunch when you keep 80% of teams as temp employees for years. Pay more attention to internal infrastructure and growing the groups who support the increasing business so you don't work people to death.

– I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
