Current Employee - Software Engineer in Sunnyvale, CA

I have been working at SeaMicro full-time (more than an year)

Pros

The relationship between teams and employees is generally good.
The CEO is quite open.
Very good base salary, The total compensation may not be up to Google's level. But it's much higher than the typical tech companies in the bay area.
9 free meals each week and free drink/snack
Normally, no overtime is required.

Cons

Not sure why the product is not selling. Worse, it doesn't seem that anyone in the company can figure it out.
Because of the bad sale number, the bonus is minimum, if there is anything at all.
Some teams at the critical path are consistently under-staffed while some other teams are bloated and let people sit idle for weeks/months.

    Pros

    Product of data center in a box was revolutionary. Team was experienced and was able to get several new versions released quickly.

    Cons

    Like most startups only the founders, investors and a few VPs get the tremendous financial rewards. Everybody else nets about the same in total benefits when compared to a larger company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Let the employees also get a "reasonable reward"

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Is there any fundamental issue from letting independent server reviewers review our products?
