    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.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    None
