Confused leadership, unpredictable environment
Product Copy Lead (Former Employee) – seattle, wa – July 7, 2015
Terrible place to work if you have any interest in building a career. Leadership doesn't care at all about quality control or customer experience, so if you are in the creative filed, you would come away from this work experience with nothing you'd ever want to show in a portfolio. Tech employees are worked to the bone and then tossed out to the trash.
Essentially, employees are treated as objects with little to no value. The execs expect everyone to work what they call "startup hours," except that employees have none of the vested interest of working for a startup company. Salaries are less than competitive, there is no bonus, and performance reviews haven't taken place in a year and a half.
The CEO likes to say that a "violently executed plan is better than a perfect plan," which is a business approach many people will fundamentally disagree with. If you think a motto like "violently executed plan is better than a perfect plan" sounds reckless and unwise, that's because it is. Run far from this place.
The perks include a lot of alcohol on site (fun for some, obnoxious for others), and a decent employee discount.
sub-par pay, no raises, bonuses, or even performance reviews
