    Pros

    Great staff, terrific opportunity to implement a greener solution. Work life balance good, as long as you get your work done, you are golden.

    Cons

    Zero communication to employees. Touchy feely "town halls" are a joke. There is a lot of "dead wood" employees here that need to leave or should be fired. HR is useless. Promises are not kept. Many managers should not be managing people! Salaries below Director level are averagem not keeping up with Silicon Valley.

    Advice to Management

    Time for change. Need someone to LEAD this company, providing clear and consistent direction.

    Pros

    Technology holds great promise! Lot of potential to continue to be the market leader Free food...

    Cons

    Leadership is clueless on how to move the company forward Poor communication across the board Too political to get anything accomplished

    Advice to Management

    If you have been with the company for more than 7 years, please look for a change. It is good for the company, good for the employees and I am sure it will be good for you too. Most of the exec team has been around since the initial days and should be commended for the success story of SSN. However, it is unable to take it to the next level, please make way for the next set of leaders to take this forward.
