Pros

- Work on projects with enormous scale and impact
- Recognizable brand for resume
- Good work/life balance, easy hours
- Passionate coworkers

Cons

- Limited room for advancement, which is surprising for the size of the company. Promotions tend to be random and are based on relationships rather than skills and abilities. As a result, there is a level of mediocre middle management
- People are generally nice, but not as smart as some of the other Bay Area tech companies
- Division has been growing very rapidly over the past few years, which leads to growing pains

Advice to Management

- Focus on developing talent and new leaders for the company, not on rewarding people for "playing the part"
- Pick a strategy and stick with it. Priorities change too much.

    Hierarchical and bureaucratic--not a start up environment they claim!

    Pros

    Everyone is nice and accommodating
    Decent amenities (cafeteria, food, etc)
    Good work/life balance

    Cons

    Lack of career opportunities (you have to be VERY planful or wait until the person above you moves on..like the government!!)

    Lack of focus--lots of conversation about ideas, but little understanding on how to execute
    Too many meetings with no clear outcomes or agenda

    Consensus-driven decision making--everyone needs to be involved to make a decision-big/small which is frustrating

    Leadership don't really have the experience--none have been in their current roles previously where they can really demonstrate the way forward
    V
    ery fractured organization--lack of cross-functional harmony

    Advice to Management

    Practice what you preach. If you want to resemble a high growth, innovative start up, get rid of the antiquated mentality about career, titles, roles

    Stop having so many meetings with no clear purpose

    Pros

    Chill environment; jeans all week! As long as you get your work done, you're left alone. There's a buddy system to help you network outside of your department and gain a different perspective.

    Cons

    The planning tools were outdated and the workload became mundane. Hopes of promotion depending on other people leaving their roles due to maternity leave or quitting.

    Advice to Management

    Upgrade the tools the company uses so people don't spend so much time on tedious tasks and they can focus on growing as individual contributors.
