Not what it used to be.

Project Manager (Former Employee)
Santa Clara, CA

ProsFinancially strong.
Actual commitment to work-life balance.
Nice facility.

ConsHave gone from valuing people who get things done to valuing people who "set expectations".

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