    I worked at GoPro for less than a year

    Pros

    GoPro is a really fun company to work for. The company culture is great and you will be surrounded by people with passion for sports.

    Cons

    Career opportunities were quite limited, but it might have been during the specific time I was there as well so it's hard to tell

    Advice to Management

    Invest more in your employees in terms of training to really harness on your employees's skills and talents. This would make both your staff and the company grow more

    I worked at GoPro full-time for 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.

    Spend less money on useless stuff such as free gym memberships when nobody uses them and use the money to keep people employed!

    I worked at GoPro full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Work/Life Balance. People. Culture. Benefits. Camera.

    Cons

    Lack of accountability at the middle management and above level.

    Advice to Management

    Make employees accountable for their actions. If what they are doing doesn't look right and they are not performing and always have excuses, don't give them a promotion. Peers know and it causes divisiveness and good people leave.

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

    Pros

    The products are great. There are many smart, motivated people working there. The office view and snacks also great.

    Cons

    Some very poor decisions are made at the top. Employee attrition, both voluntary and involuntary, created longer hours and much more work for employees who were already spread thin. Internal processes could also be chaotic at times.

    Pros

    A company that is something to be desired

    Cons

    Welcome to the good old boy club. Very mediocre company that doesn’t sit well in compensatory salaries once you get there. Example little increases unless you are the teachers pet. Bring your apples!
