Current Employee - Computer Scientist in Livermore, CA

Pros

Great technology, good co-workers, laid-back environment

Cons

Hyper-security focus, stifling bureaucracy, humorless management style.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Google it up. Give us free orange juice and croissants, add a decent gym, etc. Cheap investments in a positive work environment would make a big difference. Grey undecorated walls and ugly carpets are a drag.

No opinion of CEO

    Smart people, engaging projects, but bureaucracy, budget cuts, and bad management are signs of tough times ahead.

    Current Employee - Engineer in Livermore, CA

    Pros

    Really smart people solving really tough problems. Lots of opportunities to work on really cool projects.

    Cons

    Management is not addressing and communicating key issues to employees. Parney was just removed because he was looking out for the employees. Budget cuts, salary freezes, and a sense of being stuck in the past are all bad signs for the future.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Engage your younger workforce or they will start leaving to the private industry that is growing faster by the year in the bay area!
