A bit of an internal mess when I left. Things are shaking out now.

Senior Marketing Manager (Former Employee)
Mountain View, CA

ProsGreat benefits - health, dental, vision, disability, etc. ESPP program with 15% discount on purchase. Money for education. Depending on your position, free iphone and plan coverage. Generous time off starting with 19 days per year and growing based on time with the company.

ConsHugely bureaucratic. Very difficult to get new programs implemented and bring in appropriate vendors as needed. Some poorly skilled executives who were promoted based on securing the right connections.

Advice to Senior ManagementDon't take your productive individual contributors for granted.

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