    I worked at Silver Spring Networks Inc. full-time (more than 3 years)

    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 ManagementAdvice

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

    Avoid at all cost - unless you need the money till something else comes in.

    I worked at Silver Spring Networks Inc. full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    The pay is good, and the working conditions are easy. Come in / leave when you want, and don't really get anything done ... its OK.

    Cons

    The technical bar is low, really low.
    The place is all about politics and spin.

    The only useful things you will learn, is how *not* to do things.
    If you want a place where you can collect a paycheck while your technical skills rot, this is the place.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get bought out by a company that has a clue.
