Most of the employees are smart and great but there are a few bad ones...

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
Pleasanton, CA

Pros1) good location close to the mall
2) great engineers except for a few
3) CSO is very intelligent and very hard working

Cons1) clueless engineers are getting promoted even if they do not do anything
2) some engineers were hired just to fill in positions so literally anyone who walks in the door gets the job.
3) 1 and 2 is an insult to the hardworking engineers that work there
4) because of 1 and 2 good engineers are leaving

Advice to Senior Managementpromote the ones that deserve to be promoted and get rid of the ones that are pulling the team down... don't promise employee retention programs and then leave the next week.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
