    Pros

    Generally cool folks to work with - this definitely started going downhill. Technology is great and even without good leadership it'll continue to get adopted.

    Thank you for sharing your thoughts on your experience working at PubNub. We take feedback seriously and have shared your comments with our leadership team. Like many companies, we are doing our best to shift what used to be an office-focused workplace to being fully remote. We realize there is room for constant improvement as we navigate this new landscape and we are always interested in hearing additional ideas and feedback from our team members, which we continue to implement as we go and learn. If you care to share more, we happily welcome you to reach out to HR or any of our executives.
