Pros

Fast paced
Energetic
Visionary leader, but he is in Paris and not in the day to day

Cons

Company doesn't know what it wants...shifts in and out of strategies quickly and doesn't implement them well enough to be successful. Planning is an after thought, it is more of a shotgun approach.
Some parts of the organization are worse than a sweat shop, you will work 70+ hours for months on end. work/life balance is non-existant in these areas
You are treated like a 3rd grader...you have no real authority and scope to get your work done. Expect for people to check with you on a regular basis to set priorities (i.e., daily task lists of 15 items)
Organization does not allow you to use your brain and be strategic. It is about getting the daily tasks completed.
what is considered to be a thorough hiring practice is really a joke. 16 hours of interviews for roles below Director...get real. Either you know of you don't know about a candidate within the first few hours, no need for a candidate to meet with 15 people.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Get the right people in leadership. Look around, when flocks of people are leaving a group...it is about bad management. I've seen top talent leave, you make a mockery by protecting

    Great company with great values, but some managers don't practice what the company preaches

    Pros

    great pay, great benefits, products you can support, innovative

    Cons

    How you are treated depends on the department you work for and the managment. The company boasts how they give employees a lot of flexibility, but the department management can set their own rules and they are often personal decisions, not business decisions. Not everyone gets treated fairly or has the same opportunities.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Getting a pulse on how employees really feel about working there and how they are treated needs to happen more often.
