Pros

Flexible hours, free beverages, nice view, some very nice, hard working people, near the bus, reimbursements for parking or bus passes.

Cons

Cronyism at it's finest -- doesn't matter what you know, just who you know; self focused, arrogant and mostly inept new leadership; failure to tell the truth about shifting corporate headquarters to San Francisco and pretending employees are to dumb to figure it out; new "management" dismantled what actually made the company succeed and is now struggling to put the pieces back -- similar to what they destroyed; secretive, back stabbing. Not a culture that most people would thrive in for very long.

Advice to Management

Get over yourselves and your massive egos and engage the employees that made the company a success before you meddled with it. Ask them how to make it better and really listen, then do it.

    Fast work isn't necessarily better work. Planning is essential for success. Trust your people: you hired them for a reason.

    I can't imagine what it was like to work at DocuSign in those earlier days. I think it's paid off for those who hung on for the ride. We've brought in more senior management, made great strides in a ... More

    Pros

    High-quality engineering team members, great office views, high growth company. Overall it has been a pleasure to work here.

    Cons

    There are no real big downsides, just the normal problems associated with a growing company: improving space, separating teams with different needs, communication from top leaders to new people, etc.
