      Pros

      + Great colleagues who are very helpful and friendly, and our individual contributions are meaningful. I take great pride in the work in we do. + Benefits are generous - pre-Covid we had free lunches every day and free snacks and drinks. Great coffee as well as cold brew and kombucha on tap. + Stock is doing very well.

      Cons

      Our CEO and managers like to preach "work/life balance" and to take off the time that we need to recharge. But in practice, this is not the case. Many of us are burnt out from overworking and taking offshore calls, which bleeds into our evenings and weekends that are meant for recharging and connecting with our loved ones. In short, they are not paying me enough to be working 70 hours a week.

      Pros

      Good for WLB, standard perks

      Cons

      Pays lower than market. Some teams are highly political. Company does not promote people easily if you are on H1b whereas your colleagues who are citizens will get promoted every year for average or below average work.

      Overworked with Little Support

      Feb 8, 2021 - Content Operations Associate in Santa Clara, CA
      Recommend
      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      The people I directly worked with were nice and hardworking.

      Cons

      - People in leadership roles passed the buck all the time. Yet they would grill you if you didn't have an answer that they themselves couldn't come up with. There are some smart people, but there are some who do nothing/don't know what they are doing and delegate out. Yet they are often rewarded for the hard work that others do. - The work culture expected you to be on 24/7. Since there were offices in India, you were expected to take calls at all hours of the day. Every 12 hours I had a meeting. - It was well-known that there was a "thrown to the wolves" period, and you either sank or swam.
