Exceptional company

Human Resources (Former Employee)
San Francisco, CA

ProsTop notch perks & benefits
Work/life balance programs that make a huge difference
Volunteer opportunities and great global consciousness
Pleasant offices
Very fashionable, young employee base

ConsDirector level and above are difficult to connect with and have huge egos
With many management changes, it's tough to make progress (rules keep changing)
People have their fiefdoms and defend those instead of working together
Although they only had a few people reporting to them, my manager/s rarely had time to meet with me and cancelled many of our meetings (in favor of far more important people...gee, make me feel special, why don't you?)

Advice to Senior ManagementFollow basic managerial etiquette. Pay attention to your direct reports. Care about them. If two months has gone by and you haven't spoken with one of your direct reports, MAKE TIME (and these were HR managers. Unacceptable.)
Reorganizations and shuffling of managers may seem exciting to the Director & above level, but to the rest of us, they are distracting time wasters and unnecessary.

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