    Engineering-driven company, with some issues

    Senior Software Engineer (Current Employee)
    Redwood City, CA

    ProsGood learning environment, engineering-driven, large comfortable cubes, good compensation and benefits

    ConsDisjointed product lines, dsyfunctional build system, communication difficulty and much time spent due to global work force

    Advice to Senior ManagementNeed to find focus on what strategy to pursue, esp now with mulitple product lines. Need to invest in increasing efficiency, this seems to be to always take second place, to responding to market pressure to deliver.

    Senior Software Engineer (Current Employee)
    Redwood City, CA

    Prosinteresting work, good co-workers. a lot is expected, but its not crazy startup hours. if you are looking for a programming job where you can have your own cube but dont want to work for ibm, infa is worth considering

    Consr&d is a little understaffed right now. you dont have the chance of winning the startup lotto. your mom hasnt heard of the company, and your friends wont understand what you are making.
