First 15 years were amazing, last three under Jonathan Schwartz were terrible die to his leadership

Senior Director (Former Employee) Menlo Park, CA

ProsSmart people, latitude to do great things, flexible work environment, collaborative culture (for the most part). Scott and Ed were great leaders, JS was not!

ConsPolitics abounded. Jonathan Schwartz drove the company into the ground all by himself and fired anyone who disagreed with him. CMO was a joke and just sucked up to management rather than lead a marketing function.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
