Overworked, overpaid, over-reorg, over-hyped

(Former Employee)
Newark, CA

Pros- pays well
- pretty good benefits
- decent commute
- snack closet and free soda (mainly junk food though)

Cons- you will be over worked, which is why they overpay you. Those on the product side tend to work on weekends.
- yes they are moving to the cloud and big data but only if you're working on the new product. Otherwise, you're stuck supporting the old stuff.
- overworked = no time to learn new things
- managers are useless. They just run to their managers and do what they want.
- operates on wild, wild west mentality. Departments gets their own contractors and you're stuck implementing/supporting their stuff which is totally different from existing infrastructure. Some contractors don't bother to respond until 6 months later (totally unheard of but happens here)
- IT is very unresponsive.
- reorgs and more reorgs with the same people.

Advice to Senior ManagementHire more people so things will get done and contractors won't be needed as much.

Have a plan at the high level, but more importantly, at the individual contributor level too.

Stop the reorgs. What's the point if it's just shuffling the same old people and the managers are only puppets that does what their managers want.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
