Too many chiefs, not enough braves

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

ProsCorporate culture is excellent, great benefits and perks

ConsVery flat organization, limited opportunities outside engineering and sales. Sales office becoming more and more faceless -- not at all Googley. Long term client relationships sacrifices for short-term quota gains.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
