    Pros

    The company is value driven and truly passionate about their customers. Casa’s Team is dedicated and driven on a long-term mission, and in it to win! Awesome culture, fun co-workers; daily table-tennis matches, beautiful area for lunchtime walks, weekly catered lunch, quarterly birthday celebrations, annual family outing and new year celebration. Amazing collaboration across teams. Each day I leave the office thinking….time flies when you’re having fun!

    Cons

    Company is growing so fast, office renovations are always in process. The building will be better suited for collaboration upon completion.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you are doing! Casa’s Executive Team demonstrates dedication, perseverance, and exceptional passion.

    Pros

    Great people to work with, some management requires getting used too. Tons of talented people. Awesome benefits for a small company. Love the technology, made big waves in the Cable world.

    Cons

    The company is in a great space but some of the software release cycles need to polished, this is going to cause many headaches and possible the downfall of the product. Customers constantly complain about the software issues. Typical growing pains of a tech company fighting for market share.

    Advice to Management

    Stop freaking out on people. Not everyone is as stupid as you assume.

    Pros

    Warehouse people are friendly. IT department is great. CEO seems smart but doesn't know what is really going on at his company.

    Cons

    Terrible leadership, communication is lacking. Stop using the "oh its a startup" excuse.

    Advice to Management

    Take some basic business courses.

    Pros

    Good technology. Operations and HW engineering teams know their stuff. Nice birthday celebration with gifts and cake.

    Cons

    Hire good people then embarrass them publicly with simple-minded tirades. As expected, culture is based on fear. All the free lunches and niceties like ping pong tables can't overcome such behavior.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to and trust the experts you have brought in. Trust your people. They want to succeed. Get some anger management training.

    Pros

    The company has hired some really nice, diverse people. The building is right of the highway with plenty of parking. No other pros for me.

    Cons

    No work life balance. Work load requires very long hours. No flexibility. Ineffective senior management. There is no cafeteria or fitness center in the building.

    Advice to Management

    Allow your manager's to manage. Provide flexibility. Update your processes. Let your employee's have a life.

    Pros

    Comany CEO has a great idea into how the future of Casa Systems should be, however he is clueless who he hires that represent his company.

    Cons

    They are not truly dedicated to its employee's. HR is clueless on current right's that employees have. Company has mistreated many employees.

    Advice to Management

    Not sure how much longer I can take it here. I can not continue to have my name and Casa Systems associated together. If you are going to hire new people to work for you. Know who you are hiring.

    Pros

    Cool technology and some top-notch engineers.

    Cons

    Company runs by 'seat-of-the-pants' mode. Too many software streams/ releases, penny-wise/pound-foolish - need better organization, process, tools, equipment, etc.

    Advice to Management

    stop emphasing sales over quality -"it'll bite you

    Pros

    Company is family oriented and owners are very approachable. Peers are great to work with and are helpful. First company I worked with where you get birthday presents from the company every year and a Christmas gift. Not to mention the free lunch on Fridays for all employees.

    Cons

    Just needs more recreational facilities to take out stress, unwind, develop camaraderie through sports and stay healthy.

    Advice to Management

    Wish to have a basketball/volleyball court at the end parking lot for employees to have fun at the end of each stressful day of work.

    Pros

    Good products, that is it

    Cons

    Need to start taking care of your employee's.

    Advice to Management

    You are so so focused on only your product and not about the company's employee's this will end up being known in the future about your companies reputation
