    I have been working at GoPro full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Strong work/life balance, incredible benefits, able to take ownership on projects, smart and humble coworkers that are genuinely passionate about the product and people they work with. Given all of the changes in the last two years, its encouraging to see that leadership is finally seeing the changes it needs to make. It's not something that will happen overnight but at least it's happening.

    Cons

    Communication is sometimes lacking but this is common across every single company.

    I worked at GoPro full-time

    Pros

    At the time, GoPro was a wonderful company to work for. Very driven. Very hungry. Lots and lots of great people that made the culture fun & the work rewarding.

    Cons

    Sales leadership was a frat house.

    I have been working at GoPro full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    There were some true superstars at GoPro. They are all gone now. It is safe to say that anyone who could find a new job, did. What remains now are mediocre yes-men who are running the company into a ditch.

    Cons

    Men only get promoted. There are so many incompetent men with the title of Vice President while the women doing all the work are directors. GoPro would be a valuable, innovative company today if women were in the driver's seat. But the misogynists, the ignorant, and the bros are in control on every team. Women are nowhere to be found.

    Advice to Management

    Stop taking away benefits from your employees while publicly stating that you're trying to retain them.

    Promote women. No really, promote women.

    I worked at GoPro full-time

    Pros

    Was the brand of all brands. Early days were one cash infused adventure after another. The golden goose simply couldn’t lay eggs fast enough.

    Cons

    Inability to scale. Fast hiring and extremely low employee moral caused the machine to stall and choke on its own bile. One too many selfie on his private jet or yatch by the uncomfortably “too tan” leader.

    Advice to Management

    Sell now while you can still get $5 on your investment.

    Pros

    Fast moving company, good people to work with

    unorganized when I was there, lack of leadership and everyone was moving in their own direction
