    Pros

    The benefits are great, the company is young, flexible and casual. It's easy to work a job here into a balanced lifestyle.

    Cons

    The employee turnover is high (welcome to Silicon Valley) and the office is large. It's hard to get to know the other employees, especially the ones you don't work with.

    Advice to Management

    Hire people who buy into your company values and goals.

    Pros

    The company has a lot of potential. Nice perks. The newest HR Manager is a big improvement she is available and seems interested in all employees, not just managers.

    Cons

    Upper management sometimes forgets about the employees who are the backbone of the company and focuses on the management employee's needs only. Sometimes managers seem clueless about how things affect the staff level employees.

  3. Good entry-level job, no room for advancement

    Pros

    Good entry-level job. HR is constantly posting job listings. The company is nice, the CEO's mom is wonderful and cooks company lunches every Tuesday and Wednesday.

    Cons

    There is little to no room for advancement. Also, HR will give you the lowest possible starting salary and only a "select few" will receive raises over the time being there. I don't blame HR, as this is more of a company policy. The turnover rate is every 6 months to 1 year and most of the employees are pretty dissatisfied.

    Advice to Management

    I believe if you increase compensation, you will have a lower turnover rate and the company will grow faster.

    A great learning experience wholly soured by mismanagement and nepotism.

    Pros

    The team in which I worked was composed of a fantastic group of people. Bright, creative, never afraid to pitch in on an endeavor that they may not even directly benefit from. A great group that went above and beyond the realm of reasonable expectations, especially considering the constraints under which we were operating. Sadly, that is not a reflection of the company as a whole.

    Cons

    Where to begin...Micro-micro-micro management, blatant nepotism, a culture of "Yes Men", not to mention the insulting pay and ludicrous "direction". CEO wants a culture of 'Rock Stars' from people whose salaries are on par with what the assistant manager at Old Navy makes.

    Advice to Management

    No advise given, as it would be the ultimate act of futility. The one person who needs to hear it only has ears for his own voice.

  6. Good place to be an entrepreneur and take charge of you career

    Pros

    - Awesome colleagues
    - High energy/entrepreneurial environment
    - Yoga, Fitness classes a few times a week, onsite gym and beautiful Guadalupe trail behind the building
    - Self serve breakfast, plus healthy and delicious meals cooked 2x per week

    Cons

    Overall company has stellar departments, innovation and drive; however they need to all "speak" to each other.

    Advice to Management

    Give your top execs power to lead; improve critical processes and develop talent. Your external customer is happy, do the same for your internal customer and you will become and continue to be the leader in your industry.
