J'ai travaillé chez Fitbit en Contrat Permanent (Plus d'un an)
Good health care benefits.
Food catered happy hours, free fruit, cereal, snacks, coffee, tea, milk, etc, available in various breakrooms.
Discounts on Fitbit products (limited quantity).
General lack of direction and goals of the upper management of the company, as well as confusion in the lower ranks.
Too many unproductive and unnecessary meetings. As a subsequent side effect, this causes work to be undone and pushed to weekends, and even later hours to complete it outside of meetings.
Depending on job function, you may be working from 7am to 9pm (or later) due to time differences of international meeting calls to manufacturers in China. This is very stressful, and can disrupt your social and home life.
No 401k matching (at the time of my employment).
Conseils à la direction
More clear and concise goals, and instructions conveyed to reports.
Many times, Fitbit has an unrealistic time-line from concept to production. This causes much scrambling, pushing vendors/manufacturers to the limit, increased cost of errors caused by rushing, undue stress. The current approach only works to undermine quality and reliability, and potentially, tarnish the image of the product (and company) in the eyes of the consumers when their product is inferior and or defective.
Better retirement benefits.
More work from home options (reduce commute time, saves gas, environmental benefit).
Work on some of the above methods as well as other enticements to increase employee retention and decrease exiting.
