Nightmare in Silicon Valley

Director (Former Employee)
Palo Alto, CA

ProsExcellent and overly generous compensation, including bonus and retirement
Beautiful campus
Good Work-Life balance
Some very smart people
Fun events

ConsThe worst of academia and civil service combined;
Very political; lots of drama behind the scenes at Senior Management Level
Lots of game playing and backstabbing at peer level; many of your peers have never worked anywhere else or they are related to another employee;
Operationally, science aside, in another century; don't work here for more than a few years if you want to be employable afterwards

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
