The most thankless workplace imaginable

Former Employee - Account Executive  in  San Francisco, CA
Former Employee - Account Executive in San Francisco, CA

Pros

The view from the San Francisco office. Free lunch on Fridays is also ok.

Cons

All strategic decisions are made by a small group of people in th UK and never shared with the rest of the company. There is no such thing as a pay raise, with employees promised "discretionary" bonuses that are only delivered after threats to quit. Sales people have to adhere to stringent help generating new leads. Existing customers are generally very unhappy and instead of fixing the technology, the strategy seems to be to put a band-aid on at each customer issue with promises of longer-term fixes that never seem to materialize.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Empower people outside the inner circle to make decisions. Stop using fear to motivate employees. Focus on creating a consistent installation process to increase the customer satisfaction.

    Management brands San Jose location as toxic

    Current Employee - Software Engineer  in  San Jose, CA
    Current Employee - Software Engineer in San Jose, CA

    Pros

    average benefits; convenient location (soon to change); nice revenue growth (but no profit sharing or trickle down tow employees)

    Cons

    Never work for a company where the management told people at a location they are toxic and would not allow new hire to work there.
    No performance review, but people are fired for "performance reasons" at discretion of management with few hours notice -- apparently done every 6 months.
    No salary review -- instead people are told they will received "sky bonus" at discretion of management.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You say you want to hire best and brightest -- then give them a reason to work there
