Worker (Former Employee) – San Francisco, CA – May 18, 2018
The technology you are working on is fun but the company suffers from lack of vision and poor management. Every year there is another pivot with a lot of hoopla in order to keep the VC's happy. Couple that with a largely ineffective and inattentive upper management more concerned with self preservation, you have an environment that is unsustainable. Your best hope of advancement is to ingratiate yourself to an executive.
Free lunch, Cheap snacks, Good people
Benefits are just ok, Management needs a lot of work
Great conceptual business idea and great place to get you business exposure
Sales (Former Employee) – Greater Los Angeles Area – October 7, 2014
A typical day would comprise of meeting with vendors and making outbound calls to schools and other Artificial Intelligence robotics programs and tech start ups. I learned that many No's come before a yes and that business development is a very slow but rewarding task. Management is great but some ideas do not effectively and efficiently turn out to be good. My co-workers were the best team and some the brightest individuals I have worked with and glad to call new friends. The hardest part of the job was dealing with ambiguity and the ideas that the C class and managerial level had to execute at the grass roots level with sales that failed even after talks as a team. The most enjoyable part of the job was the vast opportunities to meet new people travel the world and develop new business methods to execute conversions and brand awareness.
