Does GoPro offer unlimited time off?

Pros

Overall company culture is great, most people are passionate about what they do and they take really good care of their full-time employees.

Cons

GoPro has a reputation as a really cool company to work for with great benefits. While that’s true for full-time employees, they shamelessly take advantage of their reputation when hiring contractors. A very large percentage of the workforce are contractors and when interviewing for a contract position they’ll tell you that the longest they can keep anyone as a contractor is 18 months. What they don’t tell you is that if they want to keep you after 18 months instead of hiring you full-time they’ll basically lay you off for 3 months and then rehire you as a contractor for another 18 months. This is their loophole to work around CA laws so they can keep someone as a contractor forever. Unethical abuse of contractors? You decide. Also you have no paid time off, mandatory unpaid holidays and a health insurance that’s pretty much the same as paying it 100% out of pocket.

Advice to Management

Stop abusing the young people who are willing to do anything to work for you. If you really think they’re valuable enough to keep around longer than what the law allows for contractors, then be reasonable and bring them on full-time with the benefits they deserve. A lot of those people are already grinding a lot harder than any of your FTE team members.

Does GoPro offer health savings accounts?

Pros

GoPro is by far the best company I've ever worked for. It's filled with passionate, intelligent, creative minds that are all driven to create incredible products. I've never been surrounded by so much inspiration and every day coming into work we have opportunities to make the seemingly impossible...possible. Everyone at GoPro is passionate about the product and the brand and that shared passion makes for an incredible work environment. The offices at GoPro are another huge perk to working here. They definitely built and designed them with the employees in mind. All the community spaces have GoPro videos on loop so you're surrounded by images of GoPro athletes and everyday people - all doing incredible things. Each office has different amenities like beach cruisers to ride to lunch, community surfboards, onsite gyms with free yoga, fitness, and meditation classes and tons of outdoor space for meetings or to get a little sunshine while you answer emails. The fact that GoPro provides all of these benefits for our physical and mental health is a testament to their commitment to a healthy work life balance. GoPro also has great benefits (100% covered for the employee) and a generous time off policy (unlimited). It's by far the best company I've ever worked for and I'd highly recommend it to anyone looking.

Cons

I've been with GoPro for four years and I've seen them go through ups and downs (like every company does) and I still consider it to be the best company I've ever worked for.

Advice to Management

Keep on hiring great people to lead your teams!
