Mostly incredible, but it is full of politics, bureaucracy, and a fear of new big ideas.

Legal Administrator (Former Employee)
San Francisco, CA

ProsGreat people, strong ideas, great community investment, management likes to leveraging dynamic skills from employees, and there is a strong desire to promote from within.

ConsBig, big, big egos, often a lack of team spirit, very hierarchical, often pay lip service to new ideas and creativity, but still feel that they know best, and do best despite a decade + of sales that say otherwise...

Advice to Senior ManagementLevel the business. Too much middle management creating bureaucracy, far too much hierarchy, and not enough honest transparency of failures, strategy, and request for creative input.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
