  • “Most promotions are based on political savvy instead of your contribution to the company.” — A Manager of Sales Strategy, also in San Francisco:
  • “Internal promotion has become political and long-winded,” says an employee in sales
  • “A very young, aggressive, smart and energized workforce has its downside: intense politics. If you are not in the right place or plugged in with the right crowd, it’s hard to get ahead,” wrote a Senior Program Manager in San Francisco.
