Best place I've ever worked!

Program Manager II (Current Employee)
San Jose, CA

ProsThe flexibility with work times and locations is amazing! I love being in an environment in which you're surrounded by smart people, in a high-tech, energetic atmosphere. It's great to receive bonuses that are performance based (in addition to CAP awards).

ConsIt would be great to on a campus that doesn't span several streets (so you could walk or drive a bit faster).

Advice to Senior ManagementConsider adding more perks for the people who aren't able to work remotely (rec rooms, additional amenities).

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
