Pros

The compensation package is good (and that's what they count on to keep you here), benefits are above average, interesting technology - when it works.

Cons

The culture is horrid; these people are the ultimate micro-managers; the sketchy ethics make me afraid to learn too much about what goes on behind closed doors.

Advice to Management

I'm not sure management is interested in any advice or feedback. It's definitely a "churn & burn" type culture. It's either their way, or the highway. Nothing in-between.

    Pros

    Great technology, extremely differentiated, multiple business applications and essentially endless amount of opportunities. Potential to make massive amounts of money.

    Cons

    Micromanaged, no communication, ridiculous expectations without regard for compensation

    Advice to Management

    sell to a company that can handle the organizational structure, the technology will speak for itself, the managment is doing it no favors

    Pros

    There's some sense of adventure within the top management. It's interesting to watch as people are jettisoned left and right for reasons that are unannounced and forgotten by morning.

    Cons

    The technology is largely a marketing game with no real promise as the end of the day. Most of the senior level engineers have no interest in staying due to the lack of technological creativity.

    Advice to Management

    Build a community that cares about the business they're in. Revamp your hiring policies to include students from more schools. Invest in the future of your employees. Engage in dialogue.
