      I worked at Fitbit

      Pros

      It would be a very important challenge, to be able to contribute my knowledge and keep growing professionally

      The rest is to contribute knowledge and help improve a product already of excellent quality

      Disapproves of CEO

      I worked at Fitbit full-time for more than a year

      Pros

      - great brand and product history - yummy snacks and cool office

      Cons

      - Existing executive team still around from the start up days, even after poor market performance, massive attrition, and major complaints from employees - CEO who is still way too deep in the weeds of product instead of providing the strategic direction and leadership needed to sustain the business - lack of commitment to a vision and direction creates major spin and time wasted on work that never makes it to market...

      Advice to Management

      The executive team absolutely needs to be refreshed at this point. The company will not sustain itself with the existing management and attrition will continue to be a pain point.

        Disapproves of CEO

        I worked at Fitbit full-time for more than 3 years

        Pros

        - Great work life balance - Opportunity to roll up your sleeves and get work done - Opportunity to work with some really nice and talented people - Mission-driven and people really care about it - Flexible WFH policy

        Cons

        - Opportunity to roll up your sleeves... because you’re constantly fighting fires and cleaning up messes. - No clear path for growth; results in in-fighting among middle management - Lack of innovation/always feeling behind the curve - Unclear strategic vision from senior leadership. - Lack of alignment from senior leadership

        Advice to Management

        Get aligned with each other. Create real goals that go beyond “deepen engagement with existing users” and “reach more users.” Set a strategy that gets us there. Then follow through with that strategy.

        Pros

        Great work/life balance, good compensation package, good benefits, overall a great place

        Cons

        Slight lack of future vision from senior management, they do plan ahead, but execution sometime lacks innovation, and not all internal ideas for operational improvements are actually heard or given a chance.
