Pros

Great people: most employees are easy to approach and get along with. Fast-paced environment. Free food, beverages, and snacks. Good health benefits. The company is doing a lot to improve the culture, they just started offering fitness classes.

Cons

The work hours can be very long, some of the employees in upper management seem harder to approach and relate to. The CEO is barely visible, which is odd for such a small company. Unless you are in upper-management, most employees only know him via e-mails and company-wide meetings.

Advice to Management

Fully embrace the open and easy-going culture of other Sillicon Valley companies like Google and Facebook. The company is taking baby steps towards having a more relaxed culture, it takes more than just bean bags and a game room because right now it all feels like a cheap imitation... maybe it's because the company is 10+ years old so it's not really a start-up... old habits die hard.

    Pros

    Free lunch & drinks Free parking

    Cons

    Sr. Management cares only about revenues and could care less about culture and employee morale making the environment prone to high turnover, functional silos, politics, and bad behavior. Unfortunately, some of the "valued" employees are young and impressionable giving way to high school type behaviors that would never be condoned as professional or simple human courtesy. There is a complete lack of communication or any transparency from Sr. management and they like it that way. Politics is extremely prevalent between the departments and often times you find yourself fighting against one another to get anything accomplished. This is not a "start-up" mentality here as it's been around for 10+years so there is a lot of dead wood walking around who are against any change (like management). Overall, it's not a good place to be for a long time or even at all. Don't be lured by the glamour of equity since it's obvious management wants to keep it just the way it is.
