Pros

If you like disciplined environment, this is the place to work. Usually programmers in bay area has to work odd hours when working for newer companies. This is not the case with Equilar as work is very well managed. It is a fast-paced environment and all employees are enthusiastic about making the place better. There are free fruits/snacks. Frequent free lunches. Lots of events like Go-karting, summer activities, holiday party. We have a TV and Wii at office. There are quarterly magazines published within the company by employees. My favorite are monthly company meetings where every department gives a presentation about the plans and progress.

Cons

I would like to change the layout of the office, but something is being planned towards that. I cannot think of any other cons.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Please try to retain the good people even at the cost of higher flexibility. But too much flexibility can spoil the disciplined culture.

    Everyone is expected to perform at peak and do whatever it takes to get the job done even it means putting in extra hours. If this is not your personality or work ethic, then Equilar may not be the place for you.
