Good Company to work for

Senior IT Engineer (Current Employee)
San Jose, CA

ProsFlexibility combined with good benefits, good learning scope within the company, Very good Sr Mgmt

ConsRewards system for top performers is flawed & demotivating, a lot of politics within first/second line managers & middle mgmt (sr mgmt is good though)

Advice to Senior ManagementIdentify real top performers and reward them instead of rewarding people who are in good books of first/second line of managers

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