      Top heavy company, but there’s room to be somewhat independent

      Feb 22, 2021 - Marketing Manager 
      Recommend
      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      There’s a pretty good overall benefits/perks/total compensation plan. If you have a good manager then you’re generally left to simply work with them and avoid the larger politics that are at play. Lots of flexibility to work from wherever, and whenever you need/want to as the company has employees and offices all around the world! It’s easy to find a good group of colleagues to unite with and make friends.

      Cons

      Micromanagement from some C-suite members, especially regarding budget approvals or in focus areas where they lack expertise. This creates delays in getting initiatives started, and creates a situation where senior leadership feels unapproachable. It’s a top heavy company resulting in not enough employees to get work done yet lots of upper management/leadership pushing on employees to achieve results. There’s a lack of company focus resulting in having to be mediocre at a lot of things vs. doing fewer things very well.
