    I have been working at Fitbit full-time for 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.

    I have been working at Fitbit full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    1. Over the past few months, we have all experienced a change in how we work, where we work from and how we manage our personal lives, all while trying to deliver the same. I appreciate that Fitbit made me feel safe and showed a real interest in offering what I need to succeed in this new environment of WFH. Some examples would be the reimbursement we get for internet services, the budget for purchasing ergonomic furniture, etc. 2. You get to work with really smart and passionate people

    Cons

    The functions outside engineering don't have too many career opportunities, especially for lateral moves.

    I worked at Fitbit full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Great snacks, fun work environment, and happy hour every Friday. Benefits are just alright. A great career starter for recent college grads to build their resume.

    Cons

    Lack of guidance from management for career growth. If you have an interest in a different role, good luck talking to your manager about making the switch. Also lots of politics at work.
