Going Under
Software Person (Former Employee) –  Carlsbad, CAMarch 22, 2017
Hate to say it, was one of the best companies to work for. However recently the upper management has switched directions repeatedly making many things half finished or stagnant. They have shifted focus so many times they continue to lose their path to success. 3 Layoffs in a few months should be a clear indication it is only a matter of time before they go under.

The bene's were great
work life balance was awesome
but ultimately they took a fun place and turned it into every other Corporate American Public Company
Pros
Snacks, Live It Thursday, Benefits, Work-Life
Cons
Lack of focus, unclear future

I had the time of my life working for GoPro, I can't speak on how it will be now as Entertainment was the heart and soul of the company - there are still rad employees there so I'm sure it's still thriving, but nothing will be as good as the Golden Days :)

Productive, challenging, fun and great co-workers
Director (Former Employee) –  San Mateo, CAMarch 8, 2016
GoPro has a great culture, talented employees and fun work space. In a fast pace work environment it is challenging but exciting on a daily basis while successfully being productive. I've continued to learn how to successfully collaborate at all levels, manage staff and scale to achieve company's growth. The constant change in management and different approach to doing business has been the hardest part of my experience at GoPro. The most enjoyable part of my job is working/collaborating with business partners throughout the company to successfully accomplish the organizational and company's goals and objectives.
Pros
Great product, talented hardworking employees, fun & exciting company
Cons
Constant change

Quality (Former Employee) –  San Mateo, CAMarch 3, 2015
Since going public the company is doing much to improve compensation and culture. Engineering environment is long hours, small cubicles, overly aggressive schedules, overlapping priorities, to much time spent in China.

Company gives cameras to employees, has reduced pricing for employees, now has 3 hours every Thursday of do what you want and shoot it. Has a cafe on site. Company Christmas party, release parties at Great America, other company functions,
Pros
Kitchens with free drinks and snacks, free cameras
Cons
Lots of china travel, long hours, near impossible schedules, little stock options.
