    Pros

    Working with the best people in their respective fields is very refreshing. A friendly work environment and very accessible management. Hard work and innovative thinking is recognized and rewarded. The bay area is one of the best locations for Food, culture and accessibility to amazing scenery.

    Cons

    Hours can be long, but hey, it is a start up company. There is a high work load, but that comes with the territory. Living costs in the bay area, particularly housing are pretty high.

    Advice to Management

    It sounds cliched, but keep up the good work!

    Pros

    Lots of creative, talented people with a wide variety of experience and cultural backgrounds. Very cooperative atmosphere and active inter-department communication keeps everything in perspective without politics getting in the way. People are willing to listen and input is valued. As challenging as the work is, the friendly environment makes these challenges stimulating. Management is accessible at even the highest levels, and there's always something new to learn.

    Generous benefits offer peace of mind and a sense of stability. This is a place that knows how to make employees feel appreciated.

    Cons

    Very under the radar - difficult to discuss with outsiders what we are about, even superficially. But I suppose that's the nature of any startup aiming to make a big impact in the industry.

    Advice to Management

    This is an awesome place to work - in no small part thanks to the company culture. As long as this survives even as we grow, I have no complaints.

    Working with a world class team this is a very rewarding job. Nice to work in for a company where everybody is pulling in the same direction. Free snacks and coffee a bonus ;-)

    You can expect long working hours (but rewarding!)

    Pros

    1) People are incredible; world-class talent, very knowledgeable -- hard to find more talented/brilliant people to learn from; people are also very supportive
    2) Management is good at setting directions w/o micro-managing; flexible in terms of defining my own role and ways of working; we can figure out our own ways of working as long as we get desired results
    3) Much room for personal growth; meritocratic

    Cons

    1) World-class talent means having a team to support it; not always the brightest part of my day to cater to particular people
    2) Workload is intense, sometimes needs to get done over the weekend; sometimes feels like I can never finish the work... Just stressful enough to make the little accomplishments more enjoyable
    3) Needs to be young-ified a bit; current perks cater to an older demographic; more ping pong, video games, and food would be much appreciated

    Advice to Management

    Perks cater to older demographic - if want more young employees, make the perks more for young people (more free food? ping pong table? better nap room?)

    Pros

    Has some great talents working in organization
    Very experienced team that has delivered world class product before..

    Cons

    An open discrimination in this company. EDD should evaluate this company for salary discrimination. There are set of engineers referred by Sr Executive has a clear advantage of salary. As against people who work in G & A, HR, Finance has very low salaries as against industry standards.
    No work life balance, although a silicon valley company, works as high school timings, no working from home, no flexibility.
    The owners's relatives work here, so very dynasty kind of culture.

    Advice to Management

    High time change the policy and treat the employees better..

    Pros

    World class engineering team. You know you are working with the best talent possible.
    Open door policy (No door to be exact). Feels like part of something special. Great growth opportunity.
    Even though it is part of automotive industry, company follows silicon valley software start up culture.

    Cons

    Very secretive and does not advertise its capability or products. People outside have no idea what company does. Sometimes people don't even update their linked in job status to remain secretive.
    Work can be very demanding with unrealistic deadlines but understandable as start-ups needs to move fast.
