Great culture, lousy business model

Head of Engineering (Current Employee)
Sunnyvale, CA

ProsGreat people to work with; friendly people (mostly). Some very smart people.

ConsTop management is disconnected; vanity/ego project abound, esp. in CTO organization. Lots of frustration in the rank and file.

Advice to Senior ManagementInvest in the future instead of wishing for past glory. Be brave and look at new businesses, new models. You're no longer king of the hill.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
