Good place to work, a fair amount of politics

Current Employee - Associate Marketing Manager in Brisbane, CA
Current Employee - Associate Marketing Manager in Brisbane, CA
Recommends
Disapproves of CEO

Pros

Great work life balance, great, friendly people and relaxed environment; opportunity to work on *big* projects that really make a difference, large budgets, tons of exposure to senior execs and senior partners at suppliers

Cons

Quite political - not clear how / why promotions happen, and performance sometimes seems second to peoples' ability to work the system.

    Approves of CEO

    Pros

    Surrounded by innovation - within e-commerce, retail, social media & social commerce Team members have a lot of responsibility & autonomy to manage large pieces of the business Ability to partner with some of the best brands in the world

    Cons

    Highly matrixed environment can make it difficult to get things done Too many re-orgs results in wasted resources when the company changes direction yet again Career development is inconsistent across groups Can get stuck in the "retail trap" of being too reactive & not strategic enough

    Advice to Management

    Set a strategy, get alignment with key stakeholders & commit to that strategy for 3-5 years Ensure communication flows consistently from Sr. Leadership to all levels in the company Ensure incentive structures are aligned to ensure clarity of goals & mission Invest more in innovation & learning about the customer

    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    Above average compensation/benefits. Convenient location for commuting. Easygoing and smart people at the individual contributor level (if you are lucky enough to be on a team that has them). Good job security. Contractors are somewhat insulated from internal BS policies. Ultra-cheap vending machines.

    Cons

    WAY too many people are getting WAY too little done. Processes everywhere, endless meetings are an everyday thing, nobody seems willing to make decisions without coordinating with fifteen other teams. Obsolete technologies, multiple redundant tiers of management, dubious hiring trends (if you know what I mean), painfully slow progress on straightforward projects.

    Advice to Management

    - focus on innovation, rather than kicking the can down the road (site support). - streamline the orgchart: cut out excess fat, flatten management, get rid of scores of useless "go-between" people roaming the hallways. - find and train capable support personnel. - buy larger monitors for employees (hint: no self-respecting engineers should have to use 19" screens anymore, this is 2011). - stop cramming people into office space like cattle.
