    Great if you find the right fit

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
    San Francisco, CA

    ProsI am fortunate to work in a great department with wonderful people and a very caring boss. Other departments in this company are not like this.

    ConsPay is low, by design, compared to other companies in the industry. They figure you are compensated in other ways by working here, which is somewhat true. Raises and career advancement are difficult.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Stable company in a great industry

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
    San Francisco, CA

    ProsPassionate employees who really believe in the company values. Industry leader on a positive trajectory. Strong emphasis on work-life balance for employees. Great benefits.

    ConsGood company for mid/senior-level managers, but not enough value placed on emerging talent. Very conservative, change- and risk-averse. Not enough diversity in leaders & decision-makers.

    Advice to Senior ManagementNeed a continued focus on leadership and management diversity, especially women

    It was fine

    Executive (Former Employee)
    San Francisco, CA

    Prosthere are a lot of great people with a lot of knowledge that are very committed to the company. Compensation is good.

    Consthere are a lot of politics and relationships at senior level of the organization are preferred over performance. Lowering cost is the main driver in changes.

    Worst Interview Process Ever

    Program Management (Current Employee)
    Emeryville, CA

    Pros-Seemed like a pretty good company despite all the negatives

    Cons-HR Staff is very bad/unorganized
    -Hiring/Interviewing process is weak at best
    -Folks in the interview process had negative things to say about each other and Supervisor

    Advice to Senior Management-Don't tell folks you are having a difficult day in an interview then never call them back again.
    -If you have someone in for an interview and don't select them, have enough class to tell the individual; HR contacts as well as interviewers did not respond to inquiry after inquiry following a very long interview. Who knows, maybe I was hired and didn't know?

    ProsThe company that offers special classes on a skill set the employee doesn't already have is a tremendous benefit for the worker's future. Cross training is beneficial to the company as well.
