Pros

Smart people
Easy access to data
Opportunity to play a leadership role

Cons

Product decisions are driven by engineering team, they're not interested in any idea they didn't come up with -- Product does not own the product

NO work/life balance at all. I work nights, weekends, holidays, and even a little on PTO days. I spend all day in useless meetings so the only time I have to do work is nights/weekends/holidays.

Roadmap changes every single month. No consistency, no plan, nothing

We have an analystics team, yet I spend all my time studying analytics.. We have a BU team, but I'm still the one defining the business justifications

Advice to Management

If you burn people out with these crazy hours, you will lose your best asset -- people!
Please talk to your managers about working smart, not tough
No meetings after 3 pm would be a great start!

    Pros

    Nice/smart people, good benefits, good work/life balance, challenging work.

    Cons

    As any big company, getting things done sometimes takes some effort. Basically, it's hard to get anything done without opening a ticket.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work. Company went through some rough paths and now seems to be in much better shape.
