I have been working at Fitbit full-time (More than a year)

Pros

free food
casual work attire
great concept
happy hour on fridays

Cons

LOW NON-COMPETITIVE SALARIES
most are contract employees = no benefits, paid vaca, paid holidays or anything
huge work load
middle management is abusive and unprofessional, Sr management not willing to listen
lots of free UNHEALTHY food, odd for a fitness/wellness company
very high school mentality among younger employees who are clicky
staff who has been there longer turn their noses up at new hires, not welcoming or friendly
HR is all about cronyism and there are contract people with no skills getting paid more
be expected to work 24/7 from your phone/laptop

Advice to Management

Make sure that middle management is following the culture you originally created!

    Pros

    No one here has an ego. This is the only company I've worked at this is devoid of overbearing egos. This means that all the decisions getting made are being done so because of intelligent pragmatic reasoning.

    By far the best project management team I have ever worked with. The PMs here have the right balance of technical knowledge, organization skill and trust in their teams to ensure that projects are moving forward in a predictable way.

    In order to keep pace with our increasing product popularity we are constantly encountering and solving growth related technical challenges.

    There are a tremendous amount of interesting, intelligent and genuine people to interact with professionally and socially.

    Cons

    As the company continues to grow its beginning to lose its small company feel. I'm starting to not know larger numbers of people.
