    I have been working at GoPro full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Strong work/life balance, incredible benefits, able to take ownership on projects, smart and humble coworkers that are genuinely passionate about the product and people they work with. Given all of the changes in the last two years, its encouraging to see that leadership is finally seeing the changes it needs to make. It's not something that will happen overnight but at least it's happening.

    Cons

    Communication is sometimes lacking but this is common across every single company.

    I worked at GoPro full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great and supportive team environment, flexible policies, free products and good discounts, free snacks, comfortable and good work place and facilities, good work life balance.

    Cons

    Company is in a serious down time.
    Sense of significant insecurity in recent years as the company is laying off many people.

    Advice to Management

    Hope they have learnt some lessons from mistakes they made during these years. The whole company burnt out too much money and now put itself to a terrible situation. They really need some clear vision about this industry.
