    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

    Good enough benefits (food, snacks, health care, yoga). In the South bay. Tries to have a culture through somewhat mandatory company events

    Cons

    Vision without an accompanied execution plan. Lots of time wasted in conversations that do not have clear action plans

    Advice to Management

    Vision and strategy without execution leads to declining results

    Pros

    Very nice work environment. Many motivated employees. Friendly, collaborative culture. Good food catered everyday for lunch

    Salary and compensation was low at that time, may not be for all roles.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work, make sure compensation is even for all employees.

    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

    Free lunch (albeit, terrible lunch). Free snacks. Free beverages. Somewhat flexible work hours, unless you're in sales, people don't seem to show up to work until 10AM or so and probably leave around 3pm. Pet friendly. Leader in digital coupon space with lots of retailer partnerships and expansive network.

    Cons

    Free food is a nice perk IF you get any. Company was becoming stingy and ordering less portions despite more headcount. Aloof upper management that is severely out of touch with the company solutions and hurdles. They expect you to sell sell sell products that just don't perform. Old school products and platforms, hard to be innovative in this space. No career trajectory here and high turnover. The company is clearly going through growing pains after becoming public, but at the expense of the staff.

    Advice to Management

    Talk to your people. You won't understand their grievances with the company unless you truly talk to them one on one. Even after taking a company wide poll--DO SOMETHING ABOUT IT. If you're people are complaining about a common gripe, take note and take action.
