Pros

opportunities to transfer within company based on your interest and skill set. Career transition and technology learning is available for people who have passion and are willing to learn.

Cons

Well established company with relative mature technologies and business model, the opportunity to climb the corporate ladder is not easy. The culture has changed significantly due to the lack of diversity mid-level management layer.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pros

    Work Life Balance unmatched anywhere else in Bay Area. Fringe is still strong with amenities still offered such as laundry, gym, health center.

    Cons

    Mature Company with steady profits, but growth challenges prevent company from properly managing the talent pool. Other competitors seem to be moving faster and offering a more "fun" and "young" culture.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Churn faster or retain more with continued incentives

    Doesn't Recommend
