    I have been working at Tumblr full-time for more than a year


    Cool product
    Great office
    Fun parties
    Nice people
    Rad users who make the best blogs.


    Leadership is a joke, process is nonexistent and codebase is messy.
    Not much opportunity to be creative or contribute to product unless you are a designer. They dictate every pixel unless the founder gets involved, wich sends everything sideways.
    "Product managers" are glorified junior project managers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get some competent product leaders and some actual UI specialists. Don't leave all your growth in the hands of engineers-- we need help. I am not an expert at marketing strategy, but I do know that ours sucks right now. The creative team is not that creative and they make it really difficult to build anything innovative or cool. They are so condescending and clubby it is insulting. David, get your head back in the game. Stop micromanaging features and focus on the business.
