Not in right Business

Software Engineer (Current Employee)
Burbank, CA

Pros1) Work/Life Balance
2) Benefits
3) Some smart colleagues

Cons1) Company doesn't know how to make innovative products
2) Always relies on patents to market their products. Patents are junk and good for nothing
3) The company revamped twice in period of 2 years, no proper goal/strategy

Advice to Senior ManagementManagement is off-shoring engineering to China/Russia. This is further gonna degrade quality of already half baked products. The whole idea of off-shoring is gonna fail. Please wake up before you realise that

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
