Amazing culture
Loved working at Gorpro, the company culture was great and the management was awesome. I learned a lot about branding, production, and marketing. My coworkers were all very similar to me.

A young adventurous athletic culture, but didn't see much owned intellectual property
Gave me the chance to learn several new things in a relatively short time. The hardest part of the job was being remote from the large development team.

Originally the company was culture friendly
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!
Pros
Cool product and some pretty cool people
Cons
Management is complacent and gone most of the time

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.

Amazing Coworkers
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.

Great culture and passionate employees
There's a lot of great people at GoPro, and I enjoyed working there. The hardest part working there was the rounds of lay offs that continued to happen. I'm hoping this will end in 2018.
Pros
Culture, Live IT and the employees, free cameras.
Cons
Business strategy not executed well, resulting in lay offs

Great work culture but lacks advancement
The benefits were awesome. It is one of the best companies I have ever worked for. After the change in management, the work environment wasn't as positive as before.

GoPro is not just surfer dudes
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.

Unfortunately not the best
Unfortunately, this is a dying company and is not does not have a good process for innovation. Heavily relies on CEO's gut instincts, without adequate data or user research.

GoPro - Fun but Rocky
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.

No advancement
No advancement opportunities and no processes and procedures. A lot of nepotism in the workplace. Tends to hire people they know from other companies or cultures and promote within those groupings.
Pros
Great work life balance
Cons
No advancement
