    Approves of CEO

    I have been working at Fitbit full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Start-up inclusive culture, like one big family, never had a day where I would be misunderstood, stressed out to the breaking point, or having someone else backlash towards me. Great managers, who actually listen, and focus on work-life balance. And everybody's smiling, kind of a weird first week experience, but I got used to it, and started smiling.

    Cons

    None that I can think of.

    Pros

    Strong management support for doing the right thing. Opportunities to experiment with new ideas. Improving cross-team communication. Recent redoubling of focus on Inclusion/Diversity and awareness of unconscious bias. Imminent changes will be an opportunity to revisit and refine policies and procedures.

    As with many tech companies, trying new/different things related to work-at-home and communication challenges in the wake of COVID.
