The coldest,. most impersonal, dysfunctional environment i have EVER worked in.

Company IS Too Small to Offer This ! (Current Employee)
Santa Clara, CA

ProsNo micro-management, good wages.... free drinks in fridges on every floor.

ConsThe coldest,. most impersonal, dysfunctional environment i have EVER worked in. The first 2 months I was there, NOBODY EVER SPOKE TO ME. I felt isolated and invisible, and miserable. The buildings are so quiet, you'd think all the employees are mutes... no one ever chats or has a casual conversation.

Advice to Senior ManagementThe company is growing... start managing it like a LARGER company, not the small, family-type company it used to be. Quit condoning the long-term employees temper tantrums and unprofessional attitudes, interaction with others, all the stuff that, in any other Company, they would be bounced out on their ass in a HEARTBEAT for. Ease up on the Policies and documenting, and focus on the people who work for you. It would be eye-opening.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
