    Pros

    - Innovation and open to new ideas
    - Development teams are good at adopting new technologies
    - Nice working location, Pacific shores Center, right next to the bay, gym, swimming pool, indoor volley ball court
    - Friendly Human Resource staff and employees

    Cons

    An Engineering driven company. Products features tend to go way ahead than what the market needs. Product features tend to be more complex than necessary.

    Advice to Management

    Hire strong sales and marketing teams. Listen to customers and understand what they need.
    Keep the innovations in the mobile areas.

    Pros

    Decent benefits package, great work location for walking and biking, and flexible work schedule. Free gym and strategic location for commuting.

    Cons

    New product does not work. No clients and prospects do not want to use or pay for new product. No domestic sales team because everybody has left. Constant pivots on product marketing strategy and apathetic, disengaged engineering team. No one wants to stay at this company and the future is bleak at best.

    Pros

    * Talented and interesting people who have worked together on many different products
    * Interesting projects - New products and projects come all the time; you'll never get bored
    * Flat organization - The company has gone out of its way to flatten itself; so you'll never get pigeon holed

    Cons

    * If you are looking for a start-up w/ people in their 20's, this isn't it
    * If you are interested in building consumer apps, this isn't it
    * If you are looking for cushy job and remains constant, this definitely isn't it

    Advice to Management

    Creative destruction is not always the best path to innovation and growth.

    Pros

    You will get exposure to a lot of feature and technologies. People are very cooperative and friendly team atmosphere. It is easy to move inter-department so you can get experience in areas you want to build your career into.

    Cons

    The company is understaffed in some areas. Even though they try to give a good work-life balance but still there are crunch times and you will have to put in a lot.

    Advice to Management

    Try to appreciate employee's efforts in a timely mannner.
