      - Great resume builder - Nest is leading in the connected home space - Good products - Incredibly smart and passionate people working on the business (that are not senior management) - The people in middle management and execution are very collaborative


      - 100% internally focused - don't think about the consumer when developing marketing plans, only worry about what the CEO and other Google leadership cares about - Fear based leadership - Meetings, meetings, meetings, meetings and many times, meetings about other meetings - Sr. Leadership are incredibly insecure and not trusting of their employees - Ego driven culture at the top, not open to collaboration or any different points of view - Company culture is severely lacking - though, they are trying to improve this - Overall the senior leadership was hired when Nest was a tiny Silicon Valley start up - the leadership they have in place now is not capable of evolving it into the highly functional, creative marketing team it needs to be. - Commute from SF to Palo Alto - they highly discourage working from the city (or even from the Google SF office) - I witnessed a member of senior leadership ask another member of senior leadership to get their team to write positive Glass Door reviews - so clearly they know that there is an issue with company morale.

        Great CEO. Tony is a straight shooter and wears his emotions on his sleeve. His vision, passion and conviction is second to none. This last year we launched three great products in the US that we are all very proud of. Check out the Amazon ratings!


        Culture at Nest is not for everyone. People are all high achievers/team players and expect the same out of their peers. We all care about each other and ultimately the focus is on the end product and customer experience. If you want to join to simply follow and enjoy the show this place might not be the place for you. This is really not a con, more about some insight on work environment.

      Interview Tips

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



      I finished third round of interviews but realized there’s an experience that isn’t on my resume (since it’s not directly related to the jobs I’m applying for) nor did I mention it in the interview process, but it would actually be great for me to leverage and demonstrates a relevant skill for the role. Is it worth emailing and dropping a quick note about it, or should I leave it?

      I have a supply chain & inventory manager interview coming up for a museum. Can anyone provide me some insight on what questions I should be prepared for? What key points to highlight during my interview? Any tips and advice is appreciated!



      I finished final round interview. Should I send a thank you letter to everyone or only to people where I have something interesting to add on. I interviewed with the hiring manager twice already and sent thank you emails. He never responds, should I even bother to send him one more since we talked again in the final round? HR said I wouldn’t hear back until late next week earliest. It sounds like they still have to wrap up final rounds with other people. I don’t want them to forget me.
