Company with potential, but senior management seems out of touch.

(Current Employee)
Menlo Park, CA

ProsSome great people.
Products and technology worth supporting.
Good pipeline for small company.
Good mid-Bay Area location. Moving in December 2012 to a very nice, newly renovated space in the PRC in Newark.

ConsSenior management, especially the CEO, appears to be out of touch with the organization as a whole. Morale is low and there is much complaining among the ranks. Several good people have recently left or are looking to leave.

Advice to Senior ManagementAt such a small company the CEO should be more accessible to people beyond his direct reports. And HR should be lead by someone who is truly interested in making sure the work environment is good and that people feel like they are heard.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
