Pros

The change in CEO has brought huge change to the company. People really enjoy working with each other, the silos that existed are getting blown up, people are working on cool new projects in the mobile space, objectives for the company are posted and there's alignment between teams. People laugh and have fun - small enough to know everyone but big enough to have decent perks.

Cons

Still work to do to get everyone working as a team. Very dispersed organization - Sunnyvale, London, NY, Sweden - makes schedules and communications challenging.

Advice to Management

Keep open to feedback, be up front about the challenges.

    Pros

    Some of the people are amazing

    Cons

    Certain managers are promoted but not held accountable and feel that anything negative is their report's problem and don't help resolve in a constructive manner.

    Advice to Management

    Make Managers accountable for their team's performance and don't allow them to take credit for their team's success when you know they aren't impacting that success.


  2. About as far as an ideal work environment as one can get.

    Pros

    The text messenging space is somewhat interesting. The office is near many good restaurants, and they offer free brewed coffee.

    Cons

    Poor communications at all levels. Their reporting systems are horrible, and there is very little support - good luck getting any new reports or resources to automate anything.

    Almost no product or system training for new hires, making the learning curve slow for people not familiar with the industry, not to mention adding to mis-communications, mis-understanding, and errors.

    Lots of blame to go around and very little accountability to those who continue to make poor decisions.

    EXTREMELY high turnover.

    Advice to Management

    Provide good training to new hires and make senior managers more accountable.
