    I worked at Jawbone full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Free food every day, lots of really smart people, great compensation, flexible schedule and uncapped vacation, freedom to work in SF or Sunnyvale for most people, used to make really cool products, used to be really fun.

    Cons

    Went off the rails a while ago: stopped making headsets and speakers in favor of health bands (at least Oprah likes them); gotta be the world's oldest startup (17 years?), and the odd terms of the latest funding effort suggest that the well has run dry; two rounds of layoffs within 6 months (June and November 2015) - 19% total; rumors that more are coming, and that the Sunnyvale location might close. No fun.

    Advice to Management

    Don't kiss the products that made you famous goodbye. Keep a headset in the pipeline, and keep at least one Bluetooth speaker going - you invented that market, after all.
