    Former Employee - Senior Manager Human Resources in Fremont, CA

    Pros

    Well run company; financially stable and successful.
    Is run as a values-based company, and most of the time it works.
    Employees have excellent benefits, salary, OK working conditions.

    Cons

    Do not expect much in the way of praise for what you accomplish.
    Company culture is driven - people work hard and very long hours - it is expected.
    Values-based culture seems to slip away when senior management is involved.
    Decision making is a painfully slow process, often leading to endless iterations.
    The company claims to have a leader based decision process; in fact it is usually consensus with process.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Lighten up and let eh incredibly capable staff do their jobs - stop micro managing.

    Too many quarterly meetings. Focus more on the short term making the numbers...

    Pros

    The people are great. Decent flexibility with work schedules.

    Cons

    Different quarterly meetings every month. I feel like I am always working on preparing on some quarterly meeting to inform management what business change since a week ago. I seem to have of them after the merger. Also, it feel like the company is less focus on long term growth and more on meeting short term Wall Street numbers to justify the merger. Finally, the layer of management increased after merger and they are still hiring higher level managers while laying off lower level individuals who does the grunt work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Reduce the scope, scale, or amount of quarterly meetings so people can actually concentrate on growing the business instead of defending themselves constantly in quarterly meetings. Also, if you keep getting rid of individual contributors and hiring senior managers, you will run out of people that do work and lots of managers sitting in meetings...
