    Pros

    Health Benefits and Unlimited Vacation policy

    Cons

    Management was extremely critical and did not provide help/training where necessary. Training program overall was a joke. Too much chaos 24/7 and no work/life balance. It was expected that you work more than your "work hours", or you weren't serious or passionate about the job. Completely unacceptable in my opinion. I never felt appreciated, ever.

    Advice to Management

    Manage your people as people, not machines. Treat fairly and with respect. Trust your employees and don't hover like helicopter parents.

    Pros

    Benefits
    Flexibility
    Methodology/tools - Agile, Jira etc.
    Can be a good place to retire

    Cons

    There is barely any diversity in the company. A US native may will feel left out. Poor job mobility if you like career change etc. You are on your own there is no mentoring or grooming. Some shades of favoritism is also visible. This is a 10+ year old company trying to behave like startup.

    Advice to Management

    You are a great story teller but you do not tell the real story. Direction misleading and confusing. You only communicate at quarterly hands-on.

    Meet and communicate with employees more often.

    Pros

    nice free lunches and generally speaking the compensation and benefits are fair

    Cons

    terrible leadership, no communication about vision and strategy, no teamwork, most leaders are walking around afraid that they will lose their job so therefore they do nothing to standup to the top executives, place is a continual revolving door

    Advice to Management

    Retire

    Pros

    even the free lunches are terrible

    Cons

    The executive management team is in a fantasy world- low on skill, planning and communication, high on ridiculous expectations and micromanagement. The silly corporate events like dressing up for an all day Halloween party or Walking Dead Movie Nights do nothing for real team building or building the skills of the employees. There is virtually no opportunity for anyone here, it is disorganized, no goals, no real business plan, no team or individual objectives. This company is a revolving door of leaders and employees - and Customers. Attrition is incredibly high between people getting the heck out and them firing and replacing people, only to fire the next one and rehire. Trust in leadership and CEO is absolutely minimal and they are scrambling to find the next big thing that may save this place. It is not worth saving.

    Advice to Management

    Get your act together. Create an actual business plan, mission and corporate goals beyond a revenue goal and actually share with your employees. if they don't know what to believe in they can't follow you. The incredibly unprofessional, internally competitive culture people can not stand to get out of. Please, please get rid of dogs in the office. They simply do not belong there.

    Pros

    There was a good group of engineers who thirsted for a change. So prospects/possibilities were exciting.

    Cons

    CEO is ineffective. Cofounder hasn't kept up with modern advances which is troubling given the position is one of technical leadership. Cronyism and nepotism.

    Advice to Management

    This is a non-Silicon Valley Internet company even though it is based in Silicon Valley.

    Pros

    My favorite things so far are the work-life balance, free lunch and snacks, unlimited vacation, treadmill desks, and general positive and friendly attitudes. A lot of fun employee activities here!

    Cons

    Open work space in combination with the lack of small conference rooms. I also think there is room for improvement in terms of implementing corporate-wide systems/process/tools.
