Featured Review

Former Employee - Software Development Manager

I worked at PayPal full-time for more than 5 years

Pros

employee-friendly, flexible, mission/ values-driven, offers career advancement opportunities, technologically advanced, innovative, excellent culture, great pay & benefits, free learning... resources (like safari books, linkedin learning, slack channels), lunch & learn sessions, free cereal/ snacks, fruits, multiple growth tracks/ learning paths to choose from, free vending machines for accessories, reasonable work-life balance

Cons

None that I could think of

Advice to Management

Great Going!

Current Employee - Leader

I have been working at Core Digital Media full-time for more than 3 years

Pros

Without a doubt, the other people are the number one thing I love about CDM. They talk about having a "no a-hole" rule and they really do practice that. There are some really smart people who work... there, and leadership does seem to really care about the team members. Recently, there's been a renewed focus on mission and purpose and doing something beyond just making money. It's a message that seems to be resonating. There are all the other perks like free meals, company outings, tickets to concerts and games, unlimited PTO, half day Fridays during the summer, pretty good comp compared to the market - but feels like everybody has that now. So for me it's really about the opportunity to work with smart people on interesting problems.

Cons

Not everybody is smart and sometimes management hangs on too long "hoping" that someone is going to turn it around. Like a lot of small companies, sometimes they have to promote people into... leadership positions who may not be ready or suited for those roles. I think they realize it and try to help them.

Advice to Management

Be faster to move along some team members who aren't cutting it. The recent move to focusing more on the long term vision of the company is really important and people seem to like it - DON'T GO... BACK TO BEING TOO FOCUSED ON THE SHORT TERM! Other than that, keep hiring more smart people.
