Not quite the same warm & fuzzy place it was when I first started

Finance Professional (Current Employee)
Santa Clara, CA

Pros* Generally, most staff/faculty are very nice and approachable.
* It is small enough that you can be on a first name basis with a lot of people in different departments.
* Good work/life balance.

Cons* Pay is low
* Career growth/pay growth is non existent.
* Tend to hire from outside than give opportunities to staff within.

Advice to Senior ManagementYou need to give staff some sort of career path. To always hire outside is incredibly discouraging. Also, they need to get away from hiring these controlling middle aged women managers who have no lives and who make their employees lives miserable.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
