    Advice to Management

    Management needs to be more in-touch with the soldiers on the ground. All executive staff should meet with a non-senior employee for at least an hour each week. I think the company would do much better if executive and senior staff listened more. This isn't about having to deal with complaints about work hours or pay or benefits, it's so that management has a better sense of where teams are on their projects.

    I have been working at Jawbone as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Despite the hierarchies the organization is pretty flat. I had the opportunity to interact with the founder and senior leadership on a 1-1 basis. I was really happy working for my manager and team. Everyone is really friendly and helpful. Most importantly I found that everyone is really passionate about what they do a the company. Which is a big positive!

    Cons

    Nothing really. I wish my internship was longer :)
