    Many layers' middle managements constantly fighting each other, poor engineers only get recognition when they screw up.

    Pros

    If you are just a mediocre engineer, this is the place to play with the management and become one of "them".

    Cons

    If you are a hardworking kick-butt engineer, you will be miserably mounted with works that pushed onto you. If you dare to complain, management think you have attitude problem, and give you nasty review.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Fire all middle managements across the board, otherwise this company cannot even stand on its feet.

    Pros

    Location in Milpitas is good. But this has got nothing to do with IT. It continues to be an awful place to work. No one wants to come here, and you can tell from the lack of good people coming through or being hired

    Cons

    I've worked in IT for several years and it's never been as bad as this. Middle and senior managers who have been here a long time bully others and take credit for peoples work. But nothing is done. Whenever issues are reported to the directors, they just push it back. It's so dysfunctional and depressing. We've lost over 30% of the people here and they're not replaced

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There are no leaders here. You just have obedient yes men who are making life a misery for everyone under them. You've been told in countless internal surveys that this is a problem, but nothing is ever done. When it's been raised to you, you turn a blind eye. Take a good long hard look at yourself
