    I have been working at Silver Spring Networks Inc. full-time for more than 3 years

    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 ManagementAdvice

    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.

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

    I worked at Silver Spring Networks Inc. full-time for 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.
