    Disapproves of CEO

    I have been working at Jawbone full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    * Smart, motivated people * Great perks * Great products and software that employees can be proud of * Beers on the Roof!

    Cons

    * Bad managers churn through talent, especially in Engineering and design, turnover is over 100% a year * Upper management unwilling to make tough decisions on which projects to cut / or augment. Most projects are in perpetual, half-staffed limbo. Top talent leaves because they aren't being allowed to perform to their potential. Mediocre talent sticks around. * Best efforts of Engineers, Data Scientists, Designers,...

    Advice to Management

    Don't make people managers that don't have managerial skills. When managers don't perform (by hiring good talent, retaining them and allowing them to perform at their potential) let them go.
