love the company but lots of management issues

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) Mountain View, CA (US)

Pros- lots of young, smart people who are passionate about the product and the customer

Cons- inexperienced management team. overall, very little experience managing teams and developing the people, making advancement opportunities hard to come by
- micro-management culture
- some poorly defined teams and processes
- weak benefits (pay, vacation, etc)
- not the greatest work/life balance particularly given the benefits

Advice to Senior ManagementLet go... just a little will go a long way! There is a ton of value to letting people make mistakes so that they can learn and grow. You do a great job hiring so let these people work to their potential! Engage your employees to want to do more! They want to (well, many of them) but your heavy handed management style puts a cap to the level of enthusiasm and ownership that folks take on. It's a big handicap right now and is going to impact your ability to grow and maintain leadership in the industry.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
