    Pros

    Benefits are amazing, culture is great, morale is fun

    Cons

    Not sure how other departments are, but our bonus structure changed recently and its not nearly as good anymore. Very little payout and dependent on another departments performance as well.

    Pros

    The company has an overall pretty relaxed atmosphere. Unlimited vacation time, unlimited sick time, not very strict work from home rules, flexible hours, free lunch, snacks, drinks, etc. Pretty much the usual for a company in Silicon Valley/Bay Area.

    Cons

    Absolutely no personal growth or development. What's worse, employees are vocal about wanting to grow and at the very least be developed into a stronger individual contributor/employee but management just wants their employees to shove their heads into their computer screens and work work work. What makes things EVEN WORSE is that management knows about morale issues but haven't made any effort to make things better. They may have a couple of meetings to make plans about how they can make things better but after the meeting it's like the meeting never happened. Management follows up and focuses on the absolute wrong things and has no idea what their employees do day to day. There are current individual contributors who can help turn things around and these are the individuals that need to be in management roles, people that are well respected amongst their peers, focuses on motivating team members, and can develop others into stronger employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There's too much corporate politics and it's led by management! Open your eyes management or you're going to lose all your top talent!

    Pros

    Free lunch, snacks, drinks etc the usual in silicon valley. Benefits are good for this sized company. Relaxed environment, good work life balance.

    Cons

    No accountability for the leadership team. They set lofty goals and when things fail, they just lay off people under them. Just ask people how many lay-offs this company has had in the past 2-3 years. Management also seems to be lacking people skills. In one instance, they awarded someone with an very very expensive gift while giving the rest of the team close to nothing. I understand that person is important and did a good job but it was a team effort and not a one person job. By rewarding just one person, the management is saying they only care about the people at the top and not the individual contributors. It gives the wrong impression to the rest of the company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Look at all the comments here and think why the rating is so low and improve the moral!

    This company has one of the most unorganized and unprofessional H.R departments that I have come across. Very depressing, I see why no one stays.

    Pros

    Great colleagues, friendly, free food and drinks. Good atmosphere. Poker tournament, exercise room, lots of employees activities.

    Cons

    When all companies trying to move forward, Operations and IT going backward. We were told no more VMs. No more storage. Let's buy physical box instead without warranty. Don't complain to HR. If you do, you be out of here in a month. I personally seen 6 ppl complaint and they are no longer here. No communication on project, status, etc.. Very sad.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Learn the technology and listen to your people. Lots or brilliant engineers here. I can see a 20% reduction in workforce once the blackout period is over.

    Pros

    Lots of perks like other hi-tech companies like free shuttle, free lunch, etc. Generally everyone is very friendly and social.

    Cons

    There is no career development for many employees. They don't value loyalty. Company does not encourage to hire within. Upper management turns a blind eye to the high turnover rate. People get let go and there are no announcements

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Inspect teams with high turnover, focus on career development, encourage work/life balance, discourage secrecy
