Pros

Very good work and life balance, Very good 401K match: 50% of the first 6% of your salary that you contribute. Excellent team, and no stress

Cons

ESPP is not that great, since you get 15% discount for last 6-months of stock price range (as opposed to over the last 2 years that some companies like cisco, synopsys, etc might provide). the fremont offices are great, but you have to pay toll bridge tax($5) if you go there everyday

Advice to Management

good management, keep it up

    Pros

    Good pay
    Promote Within
    Laid back environment
    Gym/Cafeteria/Masseuse/Haircutting all on site!
    Typically have your own office
    Bonuses are more than decent
    Vacation time is ample

    Cons

    Management only comes to with you problems instead of accolades.
    Its more about "who you know" here than "what you know" - mostly everyone hired has an insider employee who already works there
    Easy to get lost in the numbers
    People have worked here for so long its hard to change anything, even processes that could be streamlined and made more efficient need to go through months and sometimes years of review before anything is changed since it is a publicly owned company

    Advice to Management

    Appreciate your employees more.
