A good place to learn

Current Employee - Anonymous Employee
Current Employee - Anonymous Employee

Pros

Great location downtown, good work-life balance, good recognition program. Good morale and departments get along generally well for the most part.

Cons

No diversity in upper management, no formal career development for employees, women and minorities seem to struggle for promotions and when turned down or overlooked, they leave for better pay and better opportunities.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Invest in your employee base. If you have 45% women, you should have 45% women in leadership. If you have 45% minority, then have 45% representation in leadership. Train, develop and promote.

    Pros

    Free parking, downtown location, good security

    Cons

    Horrible management - big egoes, follow gut rather than data, do not care about the employees that actually complete the work that brings in or saves money. Fighting between departments and locations -Austin thinks San Mateo is full of lazy idiots, supervisors actually tell you to ignore stupid requests and phone calls. They waste money on parties with full paid bars (during office hours and after), booking bands for merger parties, etc. And after all that spending, they eliminate positions.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Company needs a complete overhaul. You need to care about your employees as much as you do the bottom line. Stop playing favorites and backing stupid moves.

    Pros

    Good people
    Executive team with a vision
    Location, location, location - and parking is good for all downtown events.

    Cons

    * pays way below market, which I learned once I got the same job at another company
    * No diversity in upper management
    * As someone else mentioned, HR is totally inept and worthless to everyone except management.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Look for diversity. There are plenty of very talented minorities in the marketplace.
