    Pros

    Great technology, lots of smart people and a good work life balance. Compensation in line with industry averages. Good career opportunities.

    The company was obviously too technology focused to the detriment of the bottom line. There were some prima- donna engineers who thought it was all about them

    Too late - now it's in Oracle and going downhill

    Doesn't Recommend
    Negative Outlook
    No opinion of CEO
