    Pros

    The facilities team was excellent, always went out of their way to make certain employees had what they needed to work effectively at all times. The specialty coffee machines, though common, were appreciated.

    Cons

    The undercurrent of dissatisfaction, gossiping and complaining is palpable. Many regular layoffs without knowledge transfer of any kind from outgoing people/teams. Much corporate money spent on rotations of temp employees rather than improving existing structures and managing to efficiencies.

    Advice to Management

    Decide on a comprehensive strategic plan, designating actual leadership of each area and fostering cross functional communication. Stick with the plan for more than a few weeks. Remove employees that have tenure but perpetuate negativity within the company.

    Pros

    - Free Snacks
    - 401K Match
    - Good benefits

    Cons

    - Too many managers, Directors, VP for the given size of the company
    - Frequent layoffs (every 6 months). You will never able to get job security and focus on your work. There is no criteria for layoff.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on how to reduce cost without laying off.
    Reduce Manager, Directors, Marketing and VP instead of engineers.

    Pros

    Awesome people
    Clear management structure
    Freedom to work on projects outside normal duties
    Career growth opportunities
    Relatively new CEO with a vision on the future of mobile tech

    Cons

    If your not used to a fast paced environment you can quickly get lost in the all the changes in the mobile world. Between different OS versions, changes to customer requirements ect.

    Don't much recognition for things in most departments. Things that benefit the company as a whole tend to be discussed without any attribution to the person or persons that generated the content/tool/feature ect.

    Advice to Management

    Boost company moral by empowering departments to recognize the contributions of there team members. Without recognizing team members from time to time it's easy for employees to become distracted from thee day to day duties if the feel they are not noticed by teammates or partner departments within the organization

    Pros

    The culture at Good is very comfortable. There's a lot of camaraderie when it comes to meeting goals and ensuring the success and health of the company. Management provides nice perks like a well stocked kitchen and fun company events.

    Cons

    The HR department has lost touch with the concept of 'team' and being customer focused. The HR department does not solicit input from end-users prior to launching new policies and procedures. Nor do they respond in a considerate or timely manner to suggestions from employees. An example would be considering an option to directly deposit bonus payments into one's 401k plan. It took months to hear a response and then the response was snarky.

    Advice to Management

    The HR department is not where a company can afford to have unfriendly, and insecure employees.
