    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.

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

    Pros

    There were some true superstars at GoPro. They are all gone now. It is safe to say that anyone who could find a new job, did. What remains now are mediocre yes-men who are running the company into a ditch.

    Cons

    Men only get promoted. There are so many incompetent men with the title of Vice President while the women doing all the work are directors. GoPro would be a valuable, innovative company today if women were in the driver's seat. But the misogynists, the ignorant, and the bros are in control on every team. Women are nowhere to be found.

    Advice to Management

    Stop taking away benefits from your employees while publicly stating that you're trying to retain them.

    Promote women. No really, promote women.
