Disapproves of CEO

Pros

Relaxed timings.. optimum workload.... They give you time off when you need it. It is the best place to work if you just want a job and are not too serious about your career. You get discount on thier products which are very expensive outside. Lots of free food and bagels

Cons

No real career advancement if you are in IT. Place is full of politics and filled with people from one area. New and fresh ideas are shot down as a threat to the way of doing things. The system is like one guy knows the system and he wouldnt share it with anyone for job security reasons

Advice to Management

Employees need to be respected more and please take off the surveillance cameras from every floor. Its creepy.

    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    The products are fun and for the most part you feel good about them because they're educational. Technology and innovation are really cool and represent the brand well.

    Cons

    This isn't brand management at all, it's product management. Executives drive initiatives without talking to one another so there's a ton of rework and last minute scrambles. There is no employee loyalty. Strategies have huge directional changes almost every 6 months.

    Advice to Management

    Have a plan. Stick to it long enough to know whether it is working and how best to react. Communicate with your team. Recognize that your employees are working really, very hard.

    Pros

    Allows creativity in design, rewards aptitude with growth into other departments or areas (as isolated by interest and performance). High standard of product excellence.

    Cons

    Senior management a big stumbling block to efficiency, causing unnecessary stress, wasted work and incurring extra project cost for no quantifiable benefit, more often than not.

    Advice to Management

    New blood would be a good investment. Trust the middle management more, they generally are a competent bunch. Visualize ramifications of sweeping decisions before enacting them, think through the roll out of the same on small and large levels.
