It was a very successful Company

Engineer (Former Employee) Santa Clara, CA

ProsWell-seasoned Engineering teams. Good benefits. Lots of skilled employees. Ability to influence technical solutions. In the past - lots of training to improve skills in all fields.

ConsHidden decisions. Frequent and unjustified lay offs. Outsourcing the most valuable developments to India and Russia. No loyalty to old-time folks.

Advice to Senior ManagementEvaluate the results of unsuccessful outsourcing. Retain all talented and the most professional workforce in US. Re-hire all experts to restore Company's culture of 80-th and 90-th.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
