    I have been working at Fitbit full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    A company at the cutting edge of technology, creating great products and encouraging people to lead healthier, happier and more active lives. The work culture is fantastic to be a part of and it's great to be surrounded by colleagues of the highest standard.

    Cons

    None so far, though if I had to pick something it would be the challenges of keeping up in such a fast growing business.

    Advice to Management

    Be proud of what you have created, stick to the business core values, keep up the hard work and future success will follow

    Pros

    - Okay pay
    - Good benefits
    - Good work life balance
    - Great team

    Cons

    - Lack of career growth opportunities for internal candidates
    - Other departments/teams are not reliable, could be due to horrible attrition rates
    - Some employees have the same title/responsibilities on paper but in reality they have completely different responsibilities/productivity expectations and get paid the same, still hold same title
    - The moral here is in the gutter. The people i lunch with are some of the only reasons im still here and I know this to be the case for many others.

    Advice to Management

    Really need to identify and get rid of weak links and also need to identify and go to bat for key team members/consistent top performers who could be utilized elsewhere in the organization.
