    Great place to work

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) Sunnyvale, CA

    ProsGreat people, flexible work environment, exciting opportunities in fast growing competitive industries. Great benefits.

    ConsNeed to hire some more experienced operational Execs and management to help with quicker execution. A bit of Founders syndrome. No desire for founders to leave just need to balance with new perspective and experience.

    Advice to Senior ManagementIf we want to compete we need to hire the right people to fill critical roles and stop moving existing people into roles they are not qualified for, specifically some of the GM roles.

    Good company, great people

    Software Engineer (Current Employee) Mountain View, CA

    Pros1. Great people, helpful and understanding. Easily accessible.
    2. If you like to take initiative, there are a lot of possibilities to explore here and you get the credit for you work.
    3. Some of the best engineering minds in bay area work here.

    ConsThe company is mid size right now and expanding fast. This means there is some chaos in management and some miscommunication occurs.
    - Responsibilities are not clearly defined.
    - Late Work hours, which might be a good thing for some

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
