Slow to change or adapt, very conservative fiscally

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
Mountain View, CA

ProsGood benefit package and bonus program, good location and facilities, challenging work for the right people in the right departments.

ConsVery slow to make technical changes internally, can be very autocratic and non collaborative, questioning decisions often frowned upon by upper management. Very fiscally conservative, huge amounts of cash in reserve and healthy business but unwilling to give raises over the past three years.

Advice to Senior ManagementListen more to employees, encourage collaboration, frown upon decisions made just because some VP's reputation is on the line, don't boast about earnings and new business and then announce shut downs, lay offs and no salary increases.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
