    Still a Great Company, But Not What it Used to Be

    • Comp & Benefits
    • Work/Life Balance
    • Senior Management
    • Culture & Values
    • Career Opportunities
    Current Employee - Director of Product Management  in  San Diego, CA
    Current Employee - Director of Product Management in San Diego, CA

    Pros

    *Excellent Health Benefits (could be changing soon)
    *Decent Comp. Plans
    *Above-board, open-door corporate culture
    *Talented co-workers and managers
    *Tons of educational and knowledge expansion opportunities

    Cons

    *Nobody at the top layer leaves, so VERY limited upward mobility
    *Office politics are worse than most
    *Company getting increasingly stingy with options, RSUs, etc.
    *Innovation and pushing the envelope not encouraged. Don't rock the boat
    *Very "inside-out" development mentality which is typical of Engineering-focused companies ("I just built this cool widget, now let's figure out who wants to buy it.")

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    *Reward those driving innovation
    *Actively manage and cultivate talent
    *Keep people invested in the company through incentives such as stock and RSUs
    *Find updward mobility options (even cross-divisional) and create a program for those who feel stuck in their current role to explore those options. The current Internal Opportunity System is broken because many reqs are either ghost reqs or already have a candidate identified prior to opening the req. Very frustrating.
