    I worked at A9.com

    Pros

    free snacks, free coffee, foosball, ping pong, caltrain proximity, lot of lunch options, good location, great human resources department, great people

    Cons

    poor management, lack of leadership so great employees eventually left the company, apathy from management that created passive aggressive work environment

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    there should be more continuity between management/department heads and with employees. also less emphasis should be put on lunch time options and employee perks and more on career development

    No opinion of CEO
