    Pros

    Amazing People. Amazing Customers. Amazing Partners. Amazing Products. A chance to really make a difference.

    Cons

    The lack of coordination between product groups, engineering groups and both product and engineering with each other is just scary. Sometimes it feels like there are 3 competing companies in one.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Two execs gone, a few more to go and we could really turn this into something that changes everything.

    Recommends
    Positive Outlook
    No opinion of CEO

    Be more involved with employees. Provide more recognition to employees not involved with the
