Pros

New Visionary CEO (change is in the air), great smart people to work with, headquarters office in SJ looks & feeling like your working in a luxury hotel, cafe food tastes extremely good, & base compensation higher than most competitors.

Cons

Need to get with the times, old school mentality still exists with senior leadership team, management team needs some serious work they don't know how to manage, and a lot of employees who have been there ALONG time 10 plus years that aren't bringing anything new and like to do things one same old way they can't think outside of the box any more (time for them to be moved OUT)

Advice to Management

Move out employees who have been there forever and have stopped contributing more than just average. Your going to continue to demotivate new up and coming talent by having employees around who are nothing more than average.

    Pros

    Trying to live upto it's name, good work-life balance(at least it has an onsite gym).

    Cons

    Contractors are severely ill-treated. Management should be trained on how to deal with feedback and retention of valuable resources. A lot of management practices and styles are very negative thus creating a very negative environment affecting employee motivation, performance and overall loyalty. No transparency at all when it comes to providing feedback on job performance, very superficial!

    Advice to Management

    Please do away with managers that are simply not competent, have no experience whatsoever training and mentoring team members and are there to just exercise control. Treat contractors fairly and provide valid reasons for any kind of employment action.
