    Pros

    Interesting work, some freedom to make decisions
    Informal
    Challenging

    Cons

    No strict objectives from upper management makes difficult to choose what to do to progress on your career.
    Pay is low compared to other companies.

    Advice to Management

    Push the executives for higher pays to keep talents in, the company loses good people because of pay, and also makes managers job hard because of quick worker turnaround.

    Pros

    Management team provides clear, visionary message to employees. Ample opportunities for career and professional growth with industry leader. Roadmap and expectations to achieve goals were clearly articulated.

    Cons

    Compensation was below industry standard, especially long term incentive plan. Autocratic cultural values disempowered middle management. Support staffing was uncomfortably lean and seemed close to burnout.

    Advice to Management

    Compare compensation and health benefits with Silicon Valley industry norm.

    Pros

    Work life balance, good compensation, employee friendly policies.

    Cons

    Laid back culture, not aggressive as the market demands it to be.
    Not much into design and patents, except for the graphics team.
    Similar work profile over years, not so good work with the Indian counterparts.

    Advice to Management

    More innovative work for deserving employees to retain the talent pool.
    Try making the team more discussion and learning driven, rather than just getting work done!!
