    Pros

    Technically apt, reasonably leading edge hardware.

    Cons

    Abusive management. They don't like to be told anything they don't agree with. I worked there a bit over a year, and then they tried to push me out without any severance pay or options. When asked about the options they said "they are not worth anything anyways", and indeed, after they went public, I was told they indeed, the employee options were worthless. The attitude seems to be that the founders did the work, and everyone else is not to be really rewarded.

    Pros

    Free Bagels - mornings (Mon & Wed)
    Free lunch - (Tues & Thurs)
    Occassional - Dimsum & the engineers get free food everyday.
    Work hard, many highly competent people. Highly skilled workforce. They run a tight ship.
    Flex hours.
    Decent salary

    Cons

    Many growing challenges - transitioning from Private to IPO company
    Open pod, no privacy.
    Politics
    Many people work very hard. Always busy, somewhat political, management has favorites.
    Do not have many perks, free food as other Tech Companies.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat people fairly, need more team building activities and need to reward people who has been helping you reach your management goals not just your favorites.
    Need better, healthy food and drinks
    Need to incorporate a culture of flex schedules to all not just certain few.
    Work/ Life Balance
