Once enjoyable... later a disaster...

Software Engineer (Former Employee)
Brisbane, CA

Pros* Friendly staff and co-workers
* Flexible working hours (days off, sick days, work remotely the ONLY HUGE plus!)
* Ping-pong table, arcade, kitchen
* Views to the San Francisco bay
* Parking lot

Cons* Low pay compared to other tech companies
* Awkward location if you need public transportation
* NO CAREER prospects... Let me repeat: NO CAREER prospects.
* MAJORITY of employees cultivates an old-school culture: lack of innovation and leadership.
* Unqualified employees for the job (mixed academic background for different positions).
* Lack of integrating new investments (Separate divisions lead to confusion and there's no "one-team" in this company).
* "Talents" are the ones who sell and do customer service. Marketing, Engineering, Legal are NEVER recognized as having talents or quarterly awards.

Advice to Senior Management* Recognize the true talents of your company.
* Integrate the divisions.
* Invest in R&D, do not send core products to India
* Hire people with specific degrees to the job (Statistics for Analytics, Engineering/Computer Science for Engineering, etc.)

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
