Featured Review

Former Intern - Anonymous Intern

I worked at Square

Pros

Felt like had ability to make meaningful contributions at a company level

Cons

Company management felt fragmented at times

Current Employee - Sales

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

Pros

Great environment working with a cutting edge project and a fast developing industry. People are really engaged and supportive. Lots of lovely perks with lots of opportunity to move and grow in... career.

Cons

They don't always get everything right but it is because its a company playing catch up as it moves from a start up mentality into a more mature approach. The back office is catching up slowly and... this may be irritating for employees looking for everything to be de facto standard of a large office. It's not. You have to sometimes fend for yourself.

Advice to Management

Keep doing what you are doing. Listen to your employees, continue to communicate with them on the direction of the business. Don't be fixated on what you think the path to growth is - listen to... other opinions.
