    Pros

    you are encouraged to work hard so that you can learn, not much office politics, teammates are helpful when they are not busy

    Cons

    sometimes need to work overtime or over the weekends, unrealistic goals, poor planning

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    the top management should try to avoid micromanaging which pushes everybody's stress level up

    Current Employee - Technical Staff

    Pros

    Technical organization has a flat structure and everyone is easily accessible. If you like to work hard with minimal supervision (although a lot will be expected of you), you will like it.

    Cons

    Morale declined following changes leading to IPO. New upper management was brought in, they then brought in their own people and hired them over the heads of the existing employees. That created resentment, aggravated by reverse stock split and poor stock performance. The last two took away the potential reward that people worked hard for. Everyone still works hard, but you don't see the enthusiasm that was present before.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Too late to give advice. Let's hope future performance justifies the price.

    Pros

    I've been at the company just a few months, but I'm convinced it was a the best decision. The people are so friendly, very smart, and we have great team-work.

    Cons

    We are outgrowing out space due to so many new hires :-) I guess that is a good thing as well.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Consider an employee recognition awards and program.

    Self Motivation heaven

    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee
    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee

    Pros

    This company will be an ideal or workaholic heaven. The opportunities are endless, engineers are encourage to learn and progress as fast as possible. The engineers are extremely talented. Most major bugs can be resolve in days. The company is transparent and have flat culture, where even new hires can read what upper management day-to-day tasks are.

    Cons

    Probably like most companies, some of the extremely talented people are pulling most of the weight of the company. No work-life balance. Work for MOST people are 10 hours minimum 6 days a week.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Fire the dead weight, it's causing moral issue for the people that are doing most of the work.

    Pros

    have some options that are good for kindling. What was promised as the American dream is now crushed by the realism that a10 just copies every other company out there.

    Cons

    The IPO is a joke.. I feel I am wasting my time as this company figures out how to get out of this debt cloud around it.
