Pros

The best part about working at Selectica right now is the opportunity to create new products, messaging, marketing, code, culture... everything. Everyone who comes into the company right now has a clean slate to be as creative and aggressive as they want. Selectica is a company where each employee gets to choose their own path to success and is enabled to do so.

Cons

The San Mateo office is a major upgrade from the San Jose office, but it's still a bit old and creaky at times. The hectic pace and plans for growth make work stressful at times.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Communicate plans to the company more often and more transparently. Interface with employees and other departments more often.

    Pros

    It's like it's a different company than back in '07-09. The leadership knows where they want to take the company, and most of us are excited about it. The bad / lazy managers got kicked out, the good ones are getting promoted quickly. The current team knows what they're doing. It didn't used to be like that. A couple of people that left years ago have come back. Overall, the vibe is really good now. Everbody there wants to accompish something and make a name for themselves.

    People there are really into being healthy--the company pays for part of your gym membership, and everybody seems to belong to one. They have a machine in the kitchen that measures BMI that people are trying all the time.

    Cons

    The office space is boring. They say we're moving in the fall, though. The president doesn't like the space either so hopefully the new space will be more interesting. There's also only about a dozen restaurants in walking distance, and they get really old.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep on doing what you're doing!
