I have been working at Beats Electronics full-time (Less than a year)

Pros

The company has been growing quickly and is experiencing great success in the industry. Coworkers are composed of all-star talent from a variety of industries. Everyone is committed to success by getting things done. People who don't pull their weight or who are on cruise-control aren't kept around. Specific work hours are flexible, but extra hours are the norm. Your ideas can shape how things are done.

Cons

The open-environment workplace can be loud and distracting, making it difficult to focus! even while wearing headphones. Many processes are constantly changing and are not documented yet. The number of paid days off is only average.

Advice to Management

Keep the focus on making great products, reduce inefficiencies in processes, and put proper systems in place sooner rather than later.

    I worked at Beats Electronics full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Name brand, free healthcare, discounted products

    Cons

    average pay, incompetent executives, impossible to meet schedules, low regard for product quality from executives, wasteful spending on product development as a result of impossible schedules and indecisiveness/lack of skills from executives. Executives will rush an unfinished/low quality product out the door to meet their arbitrary schedule that they made up out of thin air.

    Advice to Management

    Get a new job where you actually know what you are doing.

    I worked at Beats Electronics full-time

    Pros

    you get a free set of headphones and it sounds like a cool company

    Cons

    Lack of executive management intervention to ensure cross functional collaboration. A certain amount of butt covering is expected at every company but when it results in losing revenue through fear of highlighting and addressing systematic problems then you've a serious problem on your hands...something that Apple will address immediately. There is no work, life balance and bullying is the management style of choice, huge staff turnover which means they have to hire overpriced consultants to do the work their employees got sick of doing ; staff member from LA sent to Dublin to set up international office had all 4 direct reports resign in less than 10 months. Stock options for only executive management tells you all you need to know about the exit strategy.

    Advice to Management

    none required ; Apple will have it running as a functioning company pretty quickly.
