Learned lots, worked on very cool technology, lots of education and advancement

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee) Sunnyvale, CA

Pros-Balanced quality of life if you're in the right group
-opportunity for advancement
-many educational and mentorship opportunities - good training, and development
-generally, coworkers are pleasant to nice
-easy to succeed

Cons-Ongoing layoffs since 2002 leads to lots of politics, and lots of CMA-type work, rather than focusing on results, in anything above management level.
-generally poorly paying for the bay area with no to little relocation cost of living adjustment, and very little year-to-year adjustment even for top performers.

Advice to Senior ManagementWiser aquisitions, improve data-based decision making with company-standard enterprise class BI / Analytics tools, improve compensation

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
