    Pros

    Great valley energy with numerous smart alums from strong SV companies.

    Cons

    Understand how much of a hit you'll take on Healthcare costs when negotiating salary. The rude awakening I've experienced in leaving a premium SV plan and spending thousands more out of pocket and fighting for every prescription or benefit almost can't be compensated for. We're told they're working on better plans but the additional healthcare spend keeps ratcheting up.

    I worked at Walmart part-time

    Pros

    The people you work with are for the most part very friendly. You are forced to have some sort of break every two hours. The orientation long but paid for.

    Cons

    They first start you off with so many hours and then all of sudden you work only 20 hours. You are constantly asked to do many things at once and most of the time they don't teach you how to do your job.

    Advice to Management

    Start remembering names and treat everyone the same. Make the new employees feel welcomed and not like idiots. Also teach them the basics it is not easy especially for people who are barely coming to the job.
