    Pros

    No nonsense environment, free of the negativity that so many silicon valley companies seem to have. After working at big companies and small ones in the bay area for the past 25 years, I can unequivocally say that this is the best company I have ever worked at.

    Cons

    We don't have as many "perks" as some silicon valley companies, but overall you have to decide how important that is to you. For me, working at a place where I like and respect my colleagues is much more important. I really do like my job, and that's worth a lot.

    Advice to Management

    Keep on doing what you're doing, it seems to be a winning formula: great sales, morale is great, environment is great.

  2. Perfect place to work so far
