Great if you are in Seattle, but engineering in the bay area is not the place to be

Principal Program Manager (Current Employee) Sunnyvale, CA

ProsSmart people, good benefits, stability. There is a fair amount of variety in the bay area but nothing like what there is in Seattle of course.

ConsIn my experience, teams are all very interdependent which means everyone has to agree to get anything done. Not super nimble. More talking than doing.

Advice to Senior ManagementStop hiring in partners in the bay area and grow the people that are there. It feels like there is no future down here. Pretty much all Bay Area partners were hired in.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
