If you're a college grad looking to get some great experience in a corporate setting, then GoPro is perfect for you...especially if you don't like to make money. The experience is worth it and having GoPro on your resume will take you places. It can be a fun place to be at first, but once you get settled in, you quickly learn of all the serious flaws. There are some REALLY talented people at the company, that in my opinion would do so well in other companies that realize their true potential and know their value. You also learn a ton of skills and make great connections.
The pay, at least in Media, really sucks. Like I said, great for college grads, but it's not acceptable pay for people who have tons of experience. Especially when it's HQ is in the most expensive area in the world. The company is riding high on being the first to market and creating a fairly well known brand, but lack the foresight to truly be innovative. Competitors are catching up and now GoPro is in a reactionary state. The company is very poorly managed. Friends of friends or people who were quickly needed to fill a role became managers with zero management experience. Then they wonder why their stocks are down. The company also suffers from the original employees clashing with new employees that might offer something new. Thus, trust is non-existent between anyone and nothing can get done without a million people getting involved. All of this creates a workplace that doesn't communicate effectively and misses so many opportunities to live up to the brand they say they are. It sucks, but it is what it is. On the outside, GoPro seems like the greatest company to work for. But in reality, it's a big mess.22
