How are senior leaders perceived at Interaxon?

Pros

Potential. Huge amount of potential. Intriguing and original idea steeped in neuroscience. Inge.

Cons

What a train wreck. Hopefully my negative review won't be deleted as I've seen some other negative ones deleted. Half of us got laid off last week and it's convenient for senior staff to blame it on the virus but this has been a long time coming. Company hasn't moved the needle in a long time. Muse S - an expensive cloth Muse 2 never lived up to anything and now we're expected to push hard on sleep. Meditation Studio - an acquisition of an app with no users and a CMO with no creativity and still providing little interest is another bust. Marketing has been dead for a very long time with the same website messages and boring repetition - slashing prices over and over. Having worked closely with product I can say, from candid conversations, there was no inspiration there either with frustration at having to make changes that never improved a terrible churn rate. We were always rushing to end up developing something flawed. Nobody in the company was motivated by the product. Nobody in the company, from what I could tell, ever used the product. Never understood why decisions weren't made to remove the senior leaders, especially the CEO for terrible performance and no ideas. I wish I was at the company 3 or 4 years ago to compare what times were like when the company was motivated by science and research.

Advice to Management

Accountability starts at the top. Only one senior leader removed during mass lay offs.
