    Ich habe in Vollzeit bei Switchfly gearbeitet (mehr als ein Jahr)

    Pros

    Amazing people and very competitive health benefits. Flexibility in working from home. New leadership.

    Kontras

    Had I written this review before the recent changes it would echo the other past reviews. The leadership prior to the recent changes was horrible. This created a work culture that did not represent the great people that work at Switchfly.

    Since the change, it is an entirely different company. While it is still going through a transformation that has it own challenges, it was very difficult to leave even when an amazing opportunity came up. That turn around can only be because of the new leadership. It is my hope that I get to work with these leaders again in the future.

    Rat an das Management

    Continue taking the right steps for transformation. There is a ton of opportunity for Switchfly to become dominant in the marketplace and establish itself as a transformative powerhouse within travel technology.

    Pros

    Health benefits are well supplemented by the company. Pay is competitive for this industry. They preach good values but operationally it doesnt happen

    Kontras

    Horrible management of people. Lack of defined processes, or lots of churn attempting to change processes. Lack of strategy and vision from executive leadership. No accountability. No training. Embarrassing treatment of customers. Lack of good project management. Future uncertain. Really high expectations for product to know everything about everything.

    Rat an das Management

    Create functional product areas so you can at least gain some productivity over time.

    Pros

    Great health benefits, weekly lunch and snacks.

    Kontras

    This company is the most horribly managed company I've experienced. It hires and promotes incompetence in every department, while overworking and overlooking the contributions of a handful of exceptional powerhouses, all of whom are searching for new jobs or are already gone. We've had amazing levels of attrition from those who actually make any contribution to the company, and management is more interested in saving face of their own insignificant, constantly changing contributions to allow any growth among the people it overlooks. Employees who pass the buck are the ones who make it to any level of seniority here, and the executive game of hot potato on the issues that need to be addressed is almost comical. The few who still care are losing their patience, and those who haven't found a suitable replacement job are only here if they can't afford to go without a job - several leaving with nothing lined-up. Don't trust the recent high ratings, which were done by HR.

    Rat an das Management

    Wake up, fire incompetence, don't listen to the entrenched, pick a vision, get rid of the middle people who don't actually do anything but talk well and reward the people who the company needs before they leave

    Pros

    Location in SF is nice, lots of snacks, management meetings (although they lack coherence)

    Kontras

    This is a very small company, yet remarkably hierarchical. If you’re not part of the inner circle, it’s almost impossible to get your job done. Management is lousy in virtually every part of the company, and there is a total lack of leadership from the CEO down. It’s a totally depressing work environment, pushing out a heavily flawed product.

    Rat an das Management

    Start trusting those you hire, and stop promoting minimally qualified people.

    Pros

    Individual employees, the only staff who are powering this company, care about each other
    Can be interesting to learn about inner workings of the travel industry

    Kontras

    The toxic work environment is Not Normal and cannot be attributed to growing pains or careless, lazy employees (which the CEO blames). The basic underlying issues for toxicity have been around for years, and continue to be rejected by leadership. Tenured employees remain to support their peers and career’s work—they’d like keep the product & technology they’ve dedicated a good part of their careers to intact. Their leadership fails to innovate or empower employees to do so.

    Newer employees are quickly disgruntled by the lack of support and headcount for a large amount of messy, unfun work. They realize that they’ve been sold a lemon, and snake around to survive at the expense of collaboration while job searching, quick.

    CEO’s large ego is infectious in the worst way—it impedes company progress and turns off clients, most of whom he openly spits on. He does not actively manage the executive team. He yells often, and looks unhappy more often than not. He refuses to admit or consider obvious morale issues, with an attitude of “if you don’t like it, get out.” Employees are uninspired by the lack of actual leadership, and are expected to improve their own morale. It is tough when the leader of the company is only engaged on a moody whim, and fixates on the wrong issues due to his high level of impressionability. There’s out of touch, and there’s this CEO. The low approval level is accurate. Those in his inner circle (favoritism is high here!) give him a pass on this behavior, and like most reviews state, it is devastating to have him in charge sinking the ship.

    Rat an das Management

    Stop invalidating the negative feedback (and reviews) and work with it to be better. It is not out of thin air, and these reviews are too specific and honest to be made up. You can claim Fake News all you want, but one fact stands: it starts from the top.

    Stop encouraging employees to write positive reviews, there is no material for them

    Replace the CEO

    Pros

    Friendly employees, compensation seems to be competitive but no 401k match, no set DTO policy and because you're so busy there's no good time to take vacation.

    Kontras

    Lack of training, lack of vision, expectations way out of whack with reality, everyone works 50-60 hours a week which is the expected standard, no work life-balance, horrible leadership. worst place I have worked in my 30+ year career if that tells you anything. Lots of playing favorites, no privacy
