    Employees treated great - but no vision and all talk of innovation is just noise

    Pros

    Catered meals every day, great benefits, decent pay, good creative people with a lot of talent, good workstations, not too much crunch

    Cons

    most good ideas are ignored, high turnover, company says it needs to innovate yet it slams the door in the face of any actual unproven innovation. The company seems to like the buzz words but not the actual meaning behind any of them.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You can talk the talk, but you don't seem to have any one in charge who actually is willing to walk the walk. Figure out who is stifling the innovation and get rid of them.

    You can work with very talented colleagues, but very difficult to find experienced and solid mentors and managers.

    Pros

    You are surrounded with very very talented and motivated colleagues who inspires to work more and achieve more! As long as you bring strong work ethic, quality work, and collaborative attitude, you will meet amazing talents and get to be part of great team.

    Cons

    Very very hard to find good mentors and managers. I personally had a horrible management experience at Zynga which basically made me look elsewhere and got a job. A company that puts "Be your own CEO" and "Meritocracy" should eward on employee on performance. I sadly saw lots of politics which made things harder to make things happen.
