    Absolutely brutal, yet inspiring, illuminating and rewarding

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee) Foster City, CA

    Pros-Willingness to adapt and change
    -Promising market with no clear leader yet, potential to be the market leader is possible
    -Visionary and charismatic CEO
    -Immensely talented, dedicated, and brilliant people working there, really an elite crew of people
    -Ambitious in scope, not wanting for vision
    -Extremely professional and accommodating of customers
    -Opportunities for upward mobility
    -Free lunches

    Cons-Long hours, expect to work the hardest you have ever worked
    -Lack of continuity and stability - rotating door at key upper-management positions
    -Priorities shifted arbitrarily and abruptly
    -Demanding CEO
    -Work/life balance not very good, high burnout rates
    -At times, aggressive and unrealistic deadlines and MBOs
    -Lack of open communications
    -Stringent benefits policy: WFH and PTO/sick days could be more relaxed

    Advice to Senior ManagementAgreed with reviewer below: your employees are your greatest asset, and they should be treated with greater dignity and respect. If possible, solidify the leadership roles at VP to stop the rotating door. Implement a buffer of middle management. Define clear roles and boundaries. Employees enjoying what they do can also boost productivity versus having to contend with constant uncertainty.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
