Was a great place to wrok

Member of Technical Staff IV (Current Employee) Sunnyvale, CA

ProsGood technology if you are in core data storage areas
Good pay & benefits

ConsWe can create a linked list of management chain with the link property set as personal acquaintence. Talent is irrelevent in selecting people in high positions - favoritism rules. Managers form opinion not based on rsults of work but on the opinion of their favorite "lead". Very bad for energetic neutral engineers who are not "aligned" to management drinking cool-aid.

There are quite a few good managers around and if you are lucky to be with them, your life is good. Having few product lines, job rotation is not an option and best way to advance your career path is to leave for a better job.

Advice to Senior ManagementMid management and some architects with questionable talent in a lot of groups will pull down the company. When favoritism & politics rule, bad talents accumulate and let the good talent leave.
