Company Culture

Perception does not translate

Support from management

Too much talk about being a cutting edge and progressive company yet no substance behind it. The goals are nice but the implementation is lacking. "A" for hype, "F" for implementation.

Teamwork

Too much behind the back infighting. Sadly, it is more of a nursery school than professional pool of talent.

Internal Communication

Bottom up communication is not reaaaaallllyyy encouraged despite the talk.

Gender Equality

Gotta call BS on this one.

Attitude towards older colleagues

Really "n/a" since there are only a few dinosaurs (over 45) as they are called!

Career Development

Sorry, don't look here for any career support. Good springboard though to get into a company that encourages career development.

Office / Work Environment

Good food perks but a heavy dose of carbs (beer) and salt and sugar.....

Environmental Friendliness

Good external focus.

Work-Life Balance

Hours are reasonable but face time is over emphasized.

Company Image

Severely hurt by well-publicized fines and investigation of stock platform. Will take a while to earn back trust

Job Security

Quick trigger mentality. Very few long term employees and lots of firing. They hire "independent consultants" to help mask firings.

Handicapped Accessibility

Open door policy -- but rarely used.

Workplace Safety

Not an issue.

Suggestions for improvement

  • Hire a professional HR consultant to speak to employees

What I like about the company

I know what a good employer is sadly because of the way I saw how they treated people.

What I dislike about the company

Very unprofessional attitudes of non-management employees is tolerated.

Company Culture

Truly dysfunctional. There is minimal professionalism. Respect is not encouraged. There is too much emphasis on creating a "google" culture without google expertise.

Support from management

Quite frankly, they try to implement best practices but it is truly all hype. It attempts to replicate a Silicon Valley environment, but there is limited success. It is at times very unstructured and not in a positive sense. They are too quick to fire people; hence the high turnover.

Teamwork

Too much back stabbing and newbies are not reigned in so as to play well in the sandbox. This leads to a very immature work environment. While free lunches and beer/wine breaks are nice,focus should be on career development.

Suggestions for improvement

  • Hire a professional management company to review policies

Freedom to work independently

The reality and the dream are not even close. It is a strange culture, and the high turnover suggests that something is not right.

Suggestions for improvement

  • Way too political; should link pay to performance -- and pay competitive wages and bonuses.

What I like about the company

Cool offices

What I dislike about the company

There is no career development to speak of. There is too much turnover and backstabbing. At times, it is a very unprofessional work environment. It strives to be a Silicon Valley - like company. It really should focus on why there is such a high turnover.
