Corrupted company with seriously dysfunctional HR Department that covers every possible management harassment case.

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
Palo Alto, CA

ProsIt used to be a very nice company when it just started where people were nice with bunch of great ideas.

ConsNo career growth with very low compensation. Management harassment all over the place with no HR to protect you. Company full of management lunatics that only worry about what they put in their pockets. Many good people including executive management leaving company as they feel company hasn't changed and have no future. Engineering and QA has been outsourced to India that lead to very poor product quality that over time is just getting worse and worse. Server side is extremely unstable and crashing all the time. Basically, it's not about people, it's about how much money management can put in their pockets.

Advice to Senior ManagementHire professional management that cares about people and their career growth. STOP OUTSOURCING JOBS TO INDIA and START INVESTING MONEY INTO AMERICAN ECONOMY!!! Hire professional HR that can protect their employees and not just cover management mistakes. Executive management should stop flying in the clouds and start facing reality. You're all leaving in some kind of dream world of "Financial Fantasy" that doesn't exist.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
