Used to be great, but times are changing

Unix Systems Administrator (Current Employee) San Francisco, CA

Pros- The people are mostly great
- Nice office
- Great benefits
- Passion for travel
- Lots of opportunity to learn new technologies

Cons- No more work from home
- New president that doesn't seem to understand the bay area job market
- Layoffs during a time of running extremely lean already
- Lots of good people leaving
- Average pay is below market rate
- The "fun" environment of the past has become a much more stressful and negative environment

Advice to Senior ManagementQuit the "crack the whip" attitude now or we're going to lose all our best employees. Bring back the fun, flexibility, passion, and atmosphere that made the company so successful in the past.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
