    Pros

    CEO has a great vision for where the company is headed. The company is generating product from new ideas, and not recycling/mirroring the work of others. Strong Applied Research team has pioneered some great tech. Good benefits, a flexible work schedule, professional time off policy and take your dog to work.

    Cons

    Leadership with limited experience is struggling to grow the company from a modest startup to a larger organization. Communication is a sore spot as complimenting teams don't integrate well, impeding progress. Delayed products coupled to older products hitting end of life makes the revenue outlook blurry.

    Pros

    Well designed products Bright engineers with lots of innovation Great benefits and balanced work environment

    Cons

    Great products, but company should find ways to improve marketing.

    Advice to Management

    Hire more engineers and focus on releasing products earlier. Don't give up your audio products. They also hold great promise.

    I worked at Jawbone full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Everyone you know will ask you for free product.

    Cons

    It's like a snobby elite club of jocks. Your work won't be appreciated, and there is always a new bar that the executives want you to meet .

    Advice to Management

    Stop bringing up basketball references in our meetings.
