Stay away!

Senior Software Engineer (Current Employee)
San Mateo, CA

ProsNone really. Used to be a decent place to work with some smart talented people. One product still profitable. May be a decent takeover target

ConsJust when we thought things couldn't get any worse - it did. Poor compensation, no bonus, no direction, no 401(K) match. draconian management. Sales teams rule the roost. Morale in the toilet. Most of the top talent have fled. Rest are biding their time. Impossible to find anyone excited to work here anymore

Advice to Senior Managementstop! take a deep breath and have a phased roll-out of whatever it is you are doing. Maybe we can still recover

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