Overall, solid company to work for in the valley. Lots of opportunity for personal growth and advancement.

Decline to State (Current Employee)
Mountain View, CA

ProsSupports diversity and inclusion. Good benefits and fair compensation. Company is undergoing much needed major restructuring. With that comes a layoffs, re-organizing and hiring of new talent. Seems to be working so far. Time will tell.

ConsAny major re-structuring, if well-planned and executed is painful and takes time. Seeing people lose their jobs is never pleasant. At least the new leadership is being as thoughtful, considerate, and generous as can be expected.

Advice to Senior ManagementStay the course and don't let the new management slip in to the habits of those before them, cronism, silos, and personal agendas. Ensure the new management have a way to maintain a dialogue with individual contributors to track progress against objectives, keep everyone honest and sustain a delighted, positive, productive workplace.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
