A great place to work

Software Engineer (Current Employee)
Sunnyvale, CA

ProsI love the excitement that goes on here. The people are terrifically fun, and hang out outside of work too. We go swimming together, biking, boating, exercising, dancing. I think our product is amazing, and I really like how my manager is to work with. He's extremely fair to me, and effusive in his praise.

ConsThere's a lot of work, and people work really hard. It feels like a start-up that never grew up. I wonder how much I'll like that in a few years. The other thing that bugs me is that in other groups there's a layer of middle management that I feel just goes along with the exec management. Fortunately, I don't have to put up with that BS!

Advice to Senior ManagementI've felt bad not being able to polish things for existing products because we're pushing the edge for the future ones, or not cleaning up existing code. Perhaps some time spent on this stuff instead of constant new work would boost morale...though honestly, most of us are really happy.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
