Pros

Great location and a lot of talented contributors in the Engineering organization. The space is interesting and can present interesting problems to solve.

Cons

No career or personal advancement opportunities for the employees/contributors. Ineffective Director and Executive level leadership throughout the company that prefers hand-wringing over solving problems that are solvable.They're behind the times on compensation, culture and trends resulting in difficulties in retaining and attracting talent.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Don't trivialize or marginalize your contributors, they make your big bonuses possible. When you receive feedback from the front line don't dismiss it, understand it and act on it.

    Pros

    if like funky Fremont that would the only positive thing about this place. Nothing negative about the worker bees their is just the mgt in the kindness terms sucks.

    Cons

    First of all, I feel so guillty for waiting so long to post something. It was just such an uplifting feeling being away from working there and being at real company where hard work and technical excellence was actcually appreciated. Maybe I could have prevented some poor soul from experiencing something literally that sucks the joy of life from your soul. Do you enjoy being demeaned on a daily basis, clueless mgt, then this is the place for you. But, wait maybe I can save another soul from despair. They are hiring again I have seen. Do yourself a favor and pass on by this snake pit.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat people with respect. Realize that you have some very talented people and that if you get out of their way they could do some great things.
