    05/10/17 Leadership review from Engineering

    They talk a great talk about values. But they feel more like a way to hide politics than something that the leadership team lives.

    What needs to change to make the company culture better?

    Our values mean almost nothing. We need to do more than talk about them—we need to see examples from the _top_ about how to _live_ them.
