Pros

The work environment is excellent, great people to work with that are always helpful. The company is always wanting to retain talented people and is helpful in meeting career goals.

Cons

Strong sales focus, a few of them are more than willing to throw a co-worker, a team member under the bus to make themselves look better in the eyes of the mutual customer. Some are especially egregious in the effort.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Make salesforce better aware that we are a team, and making one member suffer to increase an individual's appearance in front of customers is counterproductive.

    Archaic organization to be avoided at all costs, unless you're employed :)

    Pros

    There are some nice people there. Free parking.

    Cons

    Santa Clara office is in a poor location. Forget about taking a train to the office or a cush shuttle. We don't have those. What we do have is a vacuum at the top level that has liquidated engineering resources to the point that the company can't release a product that is innovative. Marketing is completely hamstrung with archaic systems. The web site doesn't even have a content management system. The company is full of slackers that have sat in their grey cubs for years doing nothing. Pay is awful. Company is going downhill fast.
