    Pros

    Free food, nice colleagues, interesting work

    Cons

    Poor management. The new VP of Engineerings simply looks through ordinary employees and pretends not to know them even if he has met them one on one previously. he only talks to Director and above level people. so many people have this experience daily. Founding members are more well behaved and do not treat ordinar employees like they do not exist

    Advice to Management

    It is not good to treat people like garbage. recruit genuinely good management expertise. empty vessels will make the maximum noise

    Pros

    - some smart and hard working people - a good deal of cheap labor

    Cons

    - chaotic release schedule. product marketing pushes features without thinking how much engineering effort it takes. - new engineering executie and managers coming in, making the workplace a political mess. kiss ass to keep your job. - ceo said don't worry about the sprint contract expiriing and don't worry about the stock price. focus on building a great company. reliance on sprint contract as 35% of revenue is a setup for failure when the contract expires and if they don't renew then tnav is screwed. even if sprint renews, it may be a big impact on revenue. Stock price has tanked from 20 to 6 forcing layoffs and closure of beijing office. - don't work here. many better companies in the valley to work for. - salary is average.

    Advice to Management

    cut the politics. pay employees more. don't just operate by the letter of the law, but be ethical.
