Good for people who want to end their career here or retire....worst for others

Senior Captain (Former Employee)
Sunnyvale, CA

ProsYou get to work with talented and smart people.
Salary offered is competitive.

ConsLaid back approach, few new features/enhancement coming in.
Good for people who want to retire or end their career here.
They own a propriety stack which is poorly documented and not much help from peers.
No opportunities for new joiners and first year you shall be working on fixing bugs, editing csvs, xmls, etc
Energy level is very low amongst employees.

Advice to Senior ManagementYou need to motivate your employees, simply giving ppt presentations and talks every quarter doesn't help.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
