I worked at Visual Meta full-time (Less than a year)
Back then company was doing very well financially and we had all kinds of toys and benefits.
"Senior" management consisted partly of previous interns which was there since the company was founded. Which is understandable to some degree, however creates a very strange dynamic when the people they are then overseeing have more experience and performance in the field.
