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

          Pros

          - great brand and product history - yummy snacks and cool office

          Cons

          - Existing executive team still around from the start up days, even after poor market performance, massive attrition, and major complaints from employees - CEO who is still way too deep in the weeds of product instead of providing the strategic direction and leadership needed to sustain the business - lack of commitment to a vision and direction creates major spin and time wasted on work that never makes it to market...

          Advice to Management

          The executive team absolutely needs to be refreshed at this point. The company will not sustain itself with the existing management and attrition will continue to be a pain point.
