work 150%. with 90% going to overhead and politics waste

Product Manager (Former Employee)
Cupertino, CA

ProsBig name company identity. Grandparents know who I work for.

Conslack of clear vision. cogs in wheels. pride themselves in paying 75% of competitive salaries. IT and cost cutting rules, to the detriment of logic, efficiency, and positive forward momentum. Poor work/life balance if you are someone who wants to move fast. You have to pull a LOT of dead weight around.

Advice to Senior ManagementFocus on real innovation. Cut the crap and bureaucratic overhead. Aggressively remove dead weight (mostly management).

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
