    Underpayed, under-appreciated, not treated fairly

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee) Sunnyvale, CA

    ProsStability - very stable company
    Good products
    Niche company - not much competition
    Profit Sharing - Twice per year
    401k match

    ConsUpper management not approachable
    Way too much politics
    Pay not in line with area
    Favortism
    Antiquated
    Benefits extremely expensive out-of-pocket costs

    Advice to Senior ManagementDon't be afraid to listen to your employees
    Managers cannot be afraid of confrontation - that's normal business
    Profit Sharing is supposed to be an added benefit - not a supplement to your salary
    Favortism is discriminatory - treat everyone equally

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    semi-ok

    Research Scientist (Former Employee) Sunnyvale, CA

    ProsUnique company with a very interesting analytical technology, offers interaction with various disciplines. Friendly and knowledgeable co-workers, decent salaries and good benefits, reasonable vacation package. Overall a nice place to work, although may not be competitive in all respects with other nearby companies.

    ConsMy particular discipline/specialty was not well represented at the company - most of coworkes were from a different scienticic branches. For the same reason, my work-product was, although important in one respect, a marginal one for the company as a whole. I felt that my work was not appreciated enough.

    Advice to Senior ManagementMy past experiences are just that - past experiences. I have no knowledge if current employees experiences are the same or different than mine. If, however, not much had changed - please make sure you consider all support services as important to overall company success, in a manner at least in the similar ballpark as the mainstream research.
