All the pace of Silicon Valley with none of the benefits
N/A (Current Employee) – Morgan Hill, CA – August 2, 2016
After working there for an extended period time, I have seen the company spiral into what it is today. A workforce that is doing all it can to meet expectations of management at a pace equal to or even faster than a company just 10 miles away that would pay 40% more for the work being done. The reality is you are working for your discount on bikes and bike parts, and at a certain point it's just better to work at a tech company who will support the ever increasing cost of living in the bay area, and pay full retail for bikes and parts. If they really want to retain people they would stop building new facilities or making "building improvements" (a dog park, really?) and start paying them more. It may seem like an okay place to work with all the positive glass door reviews, but hey instead of doing any actual work, the HR department likes to make false accounts and create those reviews, instead of any actual work.
Management expects growth and is putting the pressure on. It is partly due to the CEOs constant micro managing and his pressure he puts on all senior level management, which is basically the only thing that trickles down at this company.
What I've learned: Just because it sounds like a good place to work, no "benefits" outweigh the pace.
Best part of the job: It's a beautiful place to work, and you get to be around bikes all day
Hardest part of the job: It's in Morgan Hill.
Bike discounts, Gym, Lunch ride
Fast pace, CEO with no sense of self, HR department run with duct tape and string
