Great place to work at if you are oblivious to mistakes of upper management

Senior Manager (Former Employee)
Mountain View, CA

ProsGood work (technically) and opportunity to work on cutting edge. Good work culture. Good Perks.

ConsBad management period. There is a reason the company is spiralling down. At middle levels, too much hierarchy to work effectively. Lack of innovation and a lack of charismatic leader, does not inspire cult following like Apple or Google.

Advice to Senior ManagementCut down the bloat in middle management. Be the leaders you deserve to be, do not let infighting and politics take you down.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
