Pros

Flexible schedule, family friendly, wide range of opportunities, many opportunities for growth, amazing people. Our products are very cool, our process is very fast, it's amazing what we do on a daily basis. I really LOVE it here and everyone I work with!

Cons

Having a tough time with our rapid CEO cycling and direction changes. New site in Vancouver is rather cramped and difficult at times to really spread out.

Advice to Management

Think outside the box. We need to innovate new disruptive technologies. Printers and PCs have become commodity, smartphones and tablets are the new normal we need to think of new ways to cater to the new market. We need more patience and a longer attention span for developing new goods and services.

    Pros

    The people are nice, the on site health clinic in palo alto.

    Cons

    Salaries are not competitive, constant change makes you feel scared all the time. Managers are always cya-ing and that means the chaos rolls down hill. Not real empowerment at an individual level, again the management has to cya all the time, and therefore wont let you do your job. Who is your boss anyway, there have to be at least 5 people at any time checking on you, thinking they are above you.

    Advice to Management

    Cut management layers, not the people who do the job. Laying of thousands of people at the bottom won't turn this company around. Take a hard look at the management level, where you are no doubt hemorrhaging large amounts of money in perks and cash.
