Like playing “Survivor”, waiting to be voted out of the company

Distinguished Member of the Technical Staff (Current Employee) Austin, TX

ProsThe work is very interesting and challenging, and I am given a lot of management freedom to pursue topics that I think are important. With all of the layoffs and attrition, there are a lot of opportunities to excel.

ConsWe have had so many layoffs that the review and evaluation process has become a lot like the game of “Survivor” where alliances of managers vote to eliminate strong people from other people’s groups. The process is no longer based on technical achievement, but rather it is on eliminating people who out-perform you. Closing the Parmer lane site gives me an unreasonable commute.

Advice to Senior ManagementYou have to get rid of rank and rate. It has far exceeded its usefulness, and just generates a hostile environment.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
