    Pros

    + Great office environment, open, friendly, enjoyable
    + Work with amazing talent who really love what they do.
    + Autonomy & self direction.
    + Everybody listens to each-other and respects opinions.

    Cons

    - Chain of command often gives conflicting orders or prioritization
    - Big Achievements and hard work are rarely recognized properly
    - Significant animosity between London team and SF team.
    - High turn-over rate
    - New management do a poor job of communicating company goals and needs. Often leads to confusion and unnecessary work.
    - Under-performing channels/products are sometimes blamed/scapegoated on those who weren't responsible.

    Advice to Management

    The SF office lacks strong leadership. Management spent far too much time auditing minor details, and not nearly enough time contributing in a positive way. Learn to better communicate your needs in a more positive light.

    Pros

    -Team members are extremely helpful
    -very collaborative environment
    -coworkers are great
    -London team and London management are great, working with them is a pleasure

    Cons

    -salaries are entry level, even if you have experience
    -high turnover rate (in the year I was there 50% of the office turned over for various reasons)
    -no positive acknowledgement of your work, only acknowledgement is negative
    -new SF management does not communicate well
    -New SF management constantly scapegoats people for their mistakes (to the point where people get fired who shouldn't be)
    -New SF Management has an ego, even if they are wrong, they won't admit it and will find an excuse, which is costing this company millions
    -Talent IS NOT promoted unless you happen to be buddies with the executive team. Proven results are not rewarded

    Advice to Management

    Management needs to learn the value of their employees if they want to scale further. Otherwise, this company has already reached it's potential and will get pushed out of the space. Learn to promote people who have earned it, not people who are running failing programs because you are friends (this happened while I was there).

    Work process can be chaotic from time to time
