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

Pros

I came to Fitbit after working for one of the giants of Silicon Valley, really wanting to go somewhere with the small company feel. While Fitbit is no longer super small, upper management did a great job at maintaining the culture that was there when it was still a very early stage start-up. Everyone is extremely passionate about the products and the company and you are able to pick up on that right away. Very open and collaborative environment, very transparent and flat, tons of different types of people and personalities which really make for a fun, unique environment.

Cons

Only real con is that we're spread out right now...three different floors / offices that can make it to get face time in with all the different teams. That should be solved when we make the move to our new office.

Advice to Management

Keep up the good work

    middle management is abusive and unprofessional, Sr management not willing to listen
    lots of free UNHEALTHY food, odd for a fitness/wellness company

    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
