Good Job For People Who Can Roll With the Punches and Don't Expect Fast Advancement, or Support From Management

Marketing (Former Employee) Chicago, IL

Pros- Outstanding pay for middle to senior executives
- Very good perks
- Opportunity to move to another city and still keep your same job
- Relatively accessible executive management
- Friendly, youthful, energetic environment

Cons- Stick in the muds when it comes to technology support for employees
- Poor support for employees who have to make tough decisions
- Goals can be moving targets
- Very long "apprenticeship" expected prior to advancement (European model)
- You frequently feel overqualified for the set of responsibilities you've been given
- Decentralization of organization can be very inefficient, with key silos existing in different locations/time zones
- Micromanaging runs rampant from the very top on down

Advice to Senior ManagementSupport your executives in satellite offices better. Provide better IT/tech support out of Mountain View (don't make "no" your default answer). Be more consistent in expectations after setting goals. Stop surprising people with sudden, major organizational and reporting line changes.
