      too many company pivots leave workers behind

      Jan 4, 2022 - Senior Software Developer 
      Recommend
      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      Some really kind and capable people work here. Decent benefits, good PTO, reasonable working pace except for sometimes there's a miscommunication and crunch happens.

      Cons

      Huge turnover, consistent layoffs every year, priorities seem to change wildly chasing trends instead of having a singular company vision. Seems increasingly like they don't know what they're doing and they keep catering to the same aging white sports fan demographic instead of doing something fresh. Hard to feel like you have a career path instead of just doing one task after another.
