Fun while it lasted

Senior Product Manager (Former Employee)
Sunnyvale, CA

ProsFellow colleagues are generally good people, and you feel comfortable working there from day to day. You feel that you can genuinely be friends with your colleagues, and most of them are humbly brilliant. Management is great about allowing work / life flexibility when you need it. Health insurance plan has been one of the best I've seen.

ConsToo much overhead, too many meetings, too many stars have to align to get things done. At some point, you wonder whether spending 60% of your life in meetings and conference calls is the best use of one's precious time. Lack of organization around HR processes (from hiring to leaving the company)

Advice to Senior ManagementFocus less on reorgs, focus more on productivity

    Pros: Benefits are really good, subsidized cafeteria, great people. Cons: Lack of direction, morale.
