Competitive salary and great benefits package.

Mechanical Engineer (Current Employee)
San Jose, CA

ProsCompetitive salary and great benefits. Large reputable company. Depending on what product you work on, you will have all the tools and resources needed to perform well in your job. Will send you to training if it helps.

ConsA little unorganized. Management doesn't seem to be working that hard to retain talent. Some buildings are outdated. Company culture needs to work on becoming more helpful.

Advice to Senior ManagementTry hard to retain talent! Great people are leaving everyday to work at companies that show more care and attention to its employees.

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