    Good place for 9 to 5 job.

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsRelaxing work environment, company is doing better than last year.

    ConsSoftware developers are not getting respect from other teams as well as the management, product team with no technology background gets all the credit and are actually considered the boss even to developers. Some new program manager has zero knowledge of the team, introduced pure craziness to the team and creates a lot of problems.

    Advice to Senior ManagementGive more respect to developers who builds/maintains the product. Get rid of certain member within the program management team.

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

    worst company

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsI don't see any pros with this company

    ConsWorst company to work for. Managers are too biased. They differentiate team members big time in most of the teams. Unequal work distribution. Not a healthy environment at all.

    Advice to Senior ManagementTry to manage old managers in the company. They are taking advantages a lot. Try them to be more accountable

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Tech Support Sr. Leadership = Train-wreck

    Manager (Former Employee) Omaha, NE

    ProsTalented Tech Support Team. Built with integrity, this team is passionate and want badly to succeed. It's why they were hand selected. Amazing team dynamic. An All-Star cast of characters that would make anyone proud. Free coffee.

    ConsSr. Leadership in Pleasanton is the train-wreck. No concept of call center basics. Refusal to provide internal training, and you'll be ostracized for requesting it. They demonstrate zero desire to build relationships or provide the tools necessary for those who are the face of the company. You'll be asked for your suggestions, then ridiculed publicly for making them.

    Advice to Senior ManagementMake the investment in internal product training for Tech Support. Understand how to track contacts and how to use this for self service. Install a real knowledge base. Know that workforce management is more than a spreadsheet of best guesses. Stop hiding behind "we're a startup" and act like the 15 year old company that you are. Hire Sr. leadership that understands how to be proactive, not reactive - that can lead and execute.

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

    The company lacks direction.
    The company lacks customer service.

    Poor management culture

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) Pleasanton, CA

    ProsCan work from home with little interaction with employees

    ConsManagement is horrific! Several managers in the Product Education department should not be managing people.

    This is absolutely no internal processes that support a learning environment, and this department keeps their employees at arms distance. There is no teamwork and everyone one in that particular department is in it for themselves.

    Advice to Senior ManagementCompletely clean house of current management. Bring in professional people who actually understand how to conduct and run a training department.

    Develop policies and procedures for training and maintaining employees. Send management to sensitivity training.

    Bring in an independent consulting agency to reorganize the company culture.

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

    If you had to choose between unemployment or working here - stay unemployed..it's terrible

    Senior Management/Director (Former Employee) Pleasanton, CA

    ProsVery relaxed, most people have been there since the beginning. No one really enforces any policies - you can stay under radar and do very little. Good ice cream.

    ConsManagement is terrible - don't comprehend software development. Very old school technology - have no interest in adopting new solutions. The management teams are divided with fresh blood trying to make a name and old timers who were promoted (most directors / vps would not be hired as a manager in other companies) trying to hold on to their jobs. There is nothing interesting going on - your career will be on hold when you join.

    Advice to Senior ManagementManagement needs to be cleared out - and CEO (to old) and CTO (can't speak english) need to resign. You need fresh blood to really get things going.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
