Lots of sharp people, but a very political environment

Senior Software Engineer (Former Employee) Foster City, CA

ProsRearden has a lot of very sharp people. The CEO is one of the best salesmen I have ever seen anywhere. He can literally sell anything to anyone at any time and make a buyer desperate to buy. The facilities are bright and open with new furnishings in a new building. Also, compensation is very reasonable.

ConsThis is one of the most political environments that I have ever worked in. Even though I was never worried about losing my job, a climate a fear pervades the company. People are routinely fired for having offended the wrong person. Long term success is more related to what the CEO thinks of you than what you actually produce. In the senior management ranks, the CEO pits people against each other leading to a lot of back-stabbing and deceitful behavior. This gets reflected down the chain-of-command as mid-level managers maneuver to move up. There are plenty of opportunities for promotion due to the high level of turnover in the senior management ranks. There is unfortunately a large number of managers who spend all of their time covering their own backsides and trying to look good at the expense of their reports.

Advice to Senior ManagementAlthough it's probably too late to change the culture, try hiring managers that care about their reports and producing top quality software. The company seems to constantly hire managers that are more interested in empire-building and sucking-up.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
