      -Unlimited PTO -Free food, snacks -20% discount on lyft rides


      -Bad management all around, even the teams we hire for don't know how to lead -'Mean Girls' culture from legacy management- if you're not in, you're out -Managers lie about promotion cycles- when they are, when you can promote, etc. -Conflict of interests all around (managers dating directors they hire for) -They tell you what you want to hear, but don't actually care about you as a person -A lot of gossip, backstabbing, negativity -Management is never around, they silently delete 1:1 meetings -They promote people they like even if their performance is low -Many of the managers haven't worked anywhere with real processes in place so they don't have experience implementing structure

        Benefits are decent, and you can take your dog to the office. The office is consistently packed with snacks, which is also a plus.


        There were numerous instances with my previous manager and I don't understand how he had his job as long as he did! I was the only person in the office one morning and I was expected to handle Zendesk cases, monitor air control for the bike and scooter memberships, AND handle social media all while answering questions for the teams overseas. My manager also expected me to be able to understand what was happening with some legal situation that occurred over Twitter while I was out. I told him I felt overwhelmed and wasn't really able to text him while I was working. I'm also not much of a texter in general, so sometimes my texts can read short. However, he'd interacted with me enough to know that I'm a conversationalist in person. He waits 3 days to set up a 1:1 and tell me how to talk to people. And then, he said that if I was overwhelmed, we probably needed to look into my ability to do my job. Not to mention, he would constantly blame issues on me to my other teammates and they even complained and backed me up to HR. HR waited until I'd put in my notice and was conducting an exit interview to tell me that my manager was being investigated for his behavior. Keep in mind, my manager put in his notice the same week they were going to call him in for a meeting. It shouldn't have taken that long for them to take my complaints seriously. I was also the only Black person on the team....

      Interview Tips

      Feel free to post any interview questions you might be asked and I’ll help you compose an effective response :)


      Johnson & Johnson

      At the end of the interview, the interviewer said “HR will be in contact with you very soon”. Does this mean I got the job since it’s HR and not the recruiter or am I overthinking this? Any tips to ease post late stage interview anxieties?

      Process Coordinator

      I have an in-person interview for a job I applied for earlier this summer and was in the final 2. They went with an internal candidate that time. I had 3 interviews the first time, but none in-person. This is the first interview this time. Is that a really good sign? Or should I not read into it? Also, I haven't had a professional in-person interview for 7 years, what do I wear? (female, 40's)

      I'm currently interviewing for manager and senior manager positions within people operations, what are some questions you like to ask during interviews with directors and VPs?
