      Stagnant, bureaucratic, failing

      Business Outlook

      Pros

      - Free snacks - More work than resources, so there are opportunities to own larger projects -"Work" from home Fridays (aka 3 day weekends every week) - Title inflation for engineering roles (Staff at Pandora < Senior anywhere else)

      Cons

      - No clear direction or leadership or vision for the future. - No accountability. Decision making is so spread out that it takes forever to get anything done. As a side effect, low performers are never held accountable for their terrible decisions and poor work output. Product development management is more concerned with playing politics than actual results. - Lazy, inefficient employees - see the 3 day weekend/ "work" from home Fridays. Difficult to get anything done due to people working 10-4 four days a week. - Useless product managers. No innovation to speak of with "me-too" feature ideas, always playing catch up to the competitors. They add to bureaucracy, try to drive every decision, and ignore engineering input. There are far too many product managers for the amount of engineers, resulting in a huge backlog of work and not enough people to do it. - No engineering culture. It's impossible to drive new product or process ideas from the engineering side. See above for how product controls everything. - Subpar pay and no 401k matching. - Terrible morale, most people are just running out the clock until the next opportunity pops up. - Bleak business outlook, most people believe the company will be bought soon. - Terrible place to be a woman, men are constantly manterrupting, leering, and creating uncomfortable situations such as asking coworkers on dates. Raising these issues to management resulted in victim blaming and no positive outcomes.

      Career suicide

      Pros

      -Flexibility in work/life balance (if you have a great manager) -The people. I made the most amazing friendships here. Lifelong connections with the most hard-working, down to earth people.

      Cons

      -Toxic, negative environment -Severely political -Unhealthy snacks/bevs -No 401k match -Comp structure is based on your resume, alone (not on performance or how hard of a worker you are) -Merit process is a joke -Passing the buck is a thing here for most managers -Something is very wrong at the top and no one is addressing the elephant in the room Really sad how I walked in so hopeful for this place 4 years ago, given that it really did excite me to work for such a great company with great values and big goals. Leadership has been completely turned upside down since my start here. It’s a bureaucracy and no one seems to have the power to make tough decisions or, better yet, be realistic and openly talk about the bottom line. Your job will have no stability here, and it’ll likely be outsourced. The turnover is so high, and the morale is low low low. Your team will dissolve and the expectation is for you to continue to be buried in their workload plus yours, with no financial incentive. Do not buy into the hype of this place. It will drag your spirits down and spit you out faster than when you walked through those doors.
