    Current Employee - Human Resources Manager in San Jose, CA

    Pros

    Large company that has a well-known name and a pretty comprehensive salary package. There are some very bright people you will have the chance to work with in your role, and the company has some good CSR programs.

    Cons

    The company talks a lot about transparency but there is very little to none at this time. Employees often can't tie their work to the overall goals of the company, typically because the goals are constantly in flux. The promotion opportunities are unclear, as are the steps that you need to take to achieve one. It is also a true matrix structure, which makes it very difficult in terms of dotted-line reporting relationships, lack of accountability, and being pulled in a lot of different directions.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management has taken a lot of time lately to outline how it wants to be more simplified, transparent, and efficient. Little to no action has actually been taken, however, that employees can see. Not only are we disappointing the shareholders and customers lately, but there seems to be a lack of focus on how we should treat employees better and solve some of those key issues.
