    Business Outlook


    - Young (but somewhat naive/wreckless) team - Fun environment - Travel - Annual All Hands event where people go crazy (and wreckless) - Great group of people - Unique culture and company values


    - Company operates on thin margins with lots of overhead and cost centers, so the company is practically unprofitable - Have seen multiple executive-level leaders with significant experience walk off the job - Misguided priorities and constant roadmap shifts in many departments - Many failed projects and initiatives where people were hired for a specific purpose/initiative that eventually failed, leading to layoffs - Gatekeeping of information, roles, promotions - New employees often set up to fail - Frequent and chaotic reorgs that occurred multiple times while I was an employee - Bad and often fruitless/ineffective marketing campaigns; campaigns have very little to no impact/traction - DEI is a big investment at back market but is quite useless "lip service" - Too much emphasis on culture and lifestyle, not business - Company is heavily focused on French culture and market, which is not necessarily a bad thing, but management, leadership and executive decisions are all centralized in France; this can handicap the growth of other markets - Company is failing to scale and building poor/mediocre products services and features, which is creating a lot of tech debt - No code and "tape and glue" solutions to issues that ultimately require engineering resources - E-Commerce is naturally difficult and unprofitable due to constantly evolving and unrealistic customer expectations - Employees get culture and team building events, but in return get bad pay

      J'ai passé un premier entretien d'environ 30 minutes lors duquel j'ai présenté mon parcours et les raisons qui m'ont amené à postuler. Nous avons ensuite creusé tout cela, puis on m'a envoyé un cas pratique.
