Pros

There are still some fantastic and smart people in product, engineering, and design. Fantastic work life balance, and best of all your lunch is reimbursed.

Cons

Unfortunately, those fantastic and smart people are not heard and are being pushed aside. Low morale due to multiple reasons - political culture, early employees leaving, and the possibility of being thrown under the bus (even if you're doing well). Very unqualified product leadership, currently lead by marketing and biz dev.

    Pros

    Some of the top players in engineering, product and marketing are top notch. The product is cool. The market is hot for this type of thing. The office in San Fran is neat. Free snacks, soda. The younger support staff are awesome, very smart and motivated.

    Cons

    Poor sales management. Lack of vision and clarity of roles are confusing and tough to succeed in. Sales people should be aware of lack of support, and mentality of figure it out yourself. Vision for going public is clouding the culture it once was.

    Advice to Management

    Clear out sales management, start fresh, realign goals that are realistic and attainable given what should be seen as an obvious sign of what the product can bare. Get the culture back to what it once was, encourage new thinking and reward hard work even if it doesn't equate to direct revenue.

    Pros

    Hot industry. A few smart leaders still there.

    Cons

    Political culture. There is no room for trial and error. No focus on nurturing your career, if you can't help now you are pushed aside. Laying off too many smart good employees because the product is broken. Do your homework before you take a job here.

    Advice to Management

    If everyone around the company is failing, it isn't the employees fault. Look within, make serious changes at the top specifically sales management and engineering.
