Multiple projects per year with changing team compositions for each.

Engineering Manager (Former Employee)
San Jose, CA

ProsInteresting technology; good size company (can know many of its staff at all levels); good social events; qualified personnel working there.

ConsUpper management have been in place for 10+ years; there is not as much leeway for new ideas as the company likes to emphasize.

Advice to Senior ManagementThe technology is too complicated to deploy as is - needs to be simplified.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Pros: Competitive salary Some very smart engineers work here Good work/life balance Good health… Cons: Lack of coordination across departments Internal politics keep teams from using a consistent process for software development Management focused on getting a release out… Advice to Senior Management: Listen to what your engineers and testers are saying.
