Hit by the economic downturn

Software Engineer (Current Employee) Mountain View, CA

ProsFlexibility in work hours.
Great location.
Some interesting products and strategies to go after new markets.
Many smart and experienced coworkers.

ConsSlow moving.
Never seem to make any gains in terms of revenue/growth.
Company wants more done with less (several RIFs).
Offshoring a lot of engineering.
Future innovation seems questionable based on recent corporate decisions.

Advice to Senior ManagementThe company has been fractured with the offshoring, morale is low, and you're in danger of losing key contributers when the economy turns around. If something isn't done to address this, I don't see a very bright future for the company.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
