Good Career Opportunity

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
San Jose, CA

ProsBig company, employee-oriented, work-life balance, challenging projects for career. Emphasis on employee development and employee education. Great benefits and perks.

ConsNo career growth for an ambitious individual. The mid-level management team comprises of very long term employees who are planning to retire from their positions. As a result, the younger employees who work for them have no opportunities to move up the ladder.

Advice to Senior ManagementChange and adaptability are very good for any company's culture. The younger work force should be encouraged to plan and implement their innovative ideas. "This has worked well in the past and we shouldn't change anything" attitude by upper management needs to change.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
