    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.
