Engineering (Current Employee) – Seattle, WA – January 2, 2016
Common complaints from past and current employees is no career path (especially in IT/Technical skills). While there are a few excellent managers, most managers tend to be under skilled or over political.
A lot of prima donnas from other startups that joined for the "pending stock options" with massive promises and late incomplete delivery. (If IPO happened as soon as they were lead to believe, they would have sold and moved on quickly).
The old timers are solid fun people to work with -- they have business knowledge, sharing and caring. Unfortunately, they are slowly being "knocked off" by the new managers who want employees in their own image (especially ones more ignorant then they are). The founders appear to be disengaging from the business, leaving the venture capitalists changing corporate culture to a harsher returns-centric style.
From venture funds, they over-hired and under-delivered, so expect overwork and sudden downsizing without warning. If you are the boss's favorite, you are safe.
