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

Pros

Everyone you know will ask you for free product.

Cons

It's like a snobby elite club of jocks. Your work won't be appreciated, and there is always a new bar that the executives want you to meet .

Advice to Management

Stop bringing up basketball references in our meetings.

    Pros

    great experience, good people, awesome product, good financial backers, opportunity for huge growth, nice work environment, generous stock options, start up experience

    Cons

    long hours, little recognition, chaotic environment, no feedback on performance, very reactionary management style, lots of politics for a small company

    Advice to Management

    Establish a good strategic plan and direction and share it with the employees. Most activity is uncoordinated and the right hand does not know what the left hand is doing.

    Pros

    Friendly people. Smart engineers. Great office. Good location (near the SF design center). Free fitness club membership and public transit reimbursement. It's a well funded startup, so one person can still make a difference, but you don't have to worry if company will have problems making payroll.

    Cons

    It's a startup, so this is not a 9-to-5 job. No 401k matching contributions.

    Advice to Management

    Share what's going on more frequently with employees.
