Good balance of work and fun

Senior Software Engineer (Current Employee)
Redwood City, CA

ProsIf 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.

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

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
