Lord of the Flies meets Goodfellas.

SQA Engineer (Current Employee) Pleasanton, CA

ProsCatered lunches by Subway. Good water pressure in the rest rooms. I'm drawing a blank.

ConsThe absolute worst management I have encountered in my career. Brazen mendacity is the part of the corporate culture. The approach to engineering relies on superhero performance from a few, with the rest along for the ride. Ad hoc project management is still used despite chronic failure to deliver on time.

Advice to Senior ManagementTake responsibility for your mistakes and stop acting as proxies for your corporate overlords.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
