before company went public we were like family and work in close knit environment. it changed over the years especially after went ipo company did not do well and lay-off's happened every year for the last 3 years. good benefits but not good in promotion unless you know someone.
Hired as contractor.they never transfer you to full-time employee at frnt desk. lot of responsibility.absolutely no benefits. Their holiday calendar said 2 days off/Christmases 2days off for New Yrs,2days Thanksgiving. A week before the holidays of Christmas I was told we would be closed for 2 1/2wks! I would have no pay for that time. Totally screwed system.People quit a lot
The lack of real diversity was really apparent with only a conceptual idealistic plan to change it. This is more like GoBro than anything.
The core values are written but not really a implemented standard throughout the company!
Cool product and some pretty cool people
Management is complacent and gone most of the time
It was great! Got to meet a lot of people from different backgrounds and it was a good start to my professional career. The mentors gave great insight regarding the company and the ins and outs of the culture.
We always have live-it every Thursday to enjoy our GoPro Cams! This allows us to use and be familiar with the product, market ideas on producing quality videos as well know the technicalities of the product we are supporting.
I loved the team that I worked with and worked for - but wished that company wide goals and communication had been better. Credit was not given where due, and it's always unfortunate when a company has to continue to lay people off.
Being at GoPro has had its ups and downs but if you're lucky enough to be surrounded by a great team, you can achieve more than expected. The culture is solid and is not just a bunch of surfer dudes saying "Bruh". Real people work here and they work hard. I would recommend coming to work for GoPro but I wouldn't expect this job to be a forever home.
Rollercoaster ride of highs and lows. Some managers are great, some are terrible, but you will have that at most places. C-level obviously needs some work and better direction. Overall, great benefits, good pay and solid place to work.
