      Fitbit is an employer that encourages employee performance and puts special focus on employee wellbeing

      Oct 14, 2020 - Test Lead in Bucharest

      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      Highly skilled and helpful colleagues in the teams from all sites. As someone who interviewed and started during the pandemic, thus in a 100% work-from-home situation, this is a major plus from my point of view. Furthermore, employee wellbeing is a major agenda point for Fitbit top management. Among other benefits such as getting time-off for COVID-19 related problems, we are offered and encouraged to participate in a various number of wellbeing related webinars and get real and meaningful support from the People Team (HR as it's called in other companies).

      Cons

      Only one comes to mind to be honest: cross team projects means that sometimes one has to start very early or end late in the day, so for someone who needs to adhere to a strict schedule this might be problematic. That being said, the work schedule is flexible so if I need to stay late to attend a meeting then I can also start work later in that day.
