Negative Outlook
Disapproves of CEO

I worked at Linden Lab full-time (Less than a year)

Pros

- Some of the people I worked with were smart, passionate and really wanted to create something amazing.
- Product is interesting
- Work/life balance is good (no one really works that hard - which can be a bad thing)

Cons

- Leadership has no vision and don't have the skills to run something as ambitious as Sansar
- HR is never around, non existent
- The same old people have been there for the longest time
- Keep hiring the wrong people and putting the wrong people in positions of power

Advice to Management

Time to layoff some of the dead weight at the executive level and hire experts from outside.
