The road to hell is paved with good intentions

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee) Oakland, CA

ProsProbably the largest collection of really smart, dedicated and modern professionals that I've had the pleasure of working with. Before the contractions, someone who was willing to innovate could get ahead. And there are some great folks in upper management.

ConsLot of poor decisions from above, becoming decrees issued from the bunkers of their minds.
Also, it was messed up before, but things really didn't get evil until they hired the vampire.

Advice to Senior ManagementNext time you do something like this startup, try to really appreciate the value of your work force, and the need to listen to the people that are ACTUALLY creating the workflows. It's not just about the sales and marketing, I hope you realize that once the dominoes fall. Great idea and noble attempt, founders, but speaking for myself, and I believe most of the others in my situation, after 2-1/2 years (almost from the beginning) of exceeding my title and hours, I think I deserved more than being called in mid-day on a Friday to be laid off with a two week "severance" (incidentally, the "waiting period" before getting UI), and escorted out like a criminal. But trust that it really is your loss and will be someone else's gain.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
