Pros

Fairly small company, some opportunity to advance with extra effort Decent benefits Average salary Below top management, the people are tremendous

Cons

Pretty political Management is not very decisive Strategic planning could be much better Mid-level managers and below are under-appreciated

Advice to Management

This is for top management: Find expertise in current and emerging technologies - you don't have it now. Look to your assets in mid-level management and below to foster innovation. Asses your R&D spending to maximize the results.

    Pros

    Good Location Good business model Money back up from Safeway

    Cons

    Please stay from this company if you are professional. IT executives are not qualified to run the business. No process, things are getting done forcefully or by threating. There is no life work balance

    Pros

    Nice Location , Safeway's Subsidiary nothing much more than this

    Cons

    This is the only company I worked every single project start and end in war room, crazy work hours. Slavery in new form. Office space is really funny like 10 people in 5 seater car No benefits for hard working. Everything is POLITICS here Top management is completely waste starting from Directors. No one is qualified

    Advice to Management

    There is no use to advice, No one wants this company to be nice. We have already mentioned 100 times
