Great co-workers, unrealistic upper management, middle management layer trapped in the middle.

I have been working at Volcano Corporation

Pros

High level of technical expertise with peers. Good social interaction.

Cons

Upper management believes that projects are not delivered as quickly as they could be, due to the incompetence of the technical people. Unrealistic schedule expectations are not considered to be the issue. IWhile salary rates are presented as "competitive", the fact remains that those who leave for greener pastures will often make far more than their rate at Volcano.

    I have been working at Volcano Corporation full-time

    Pros

    The company has a solid vision and seems to have a solid plan to execute that vision. In many offices the people are hard working, friendly and want to add value. The CEO seems to know many people by name and really care.

    Cons

    There is just too much to do and not nearly enough people or other resources to do it. The work - life balance does not exist. Salary increases are very low, de-motivating many people contributing greatly to the company. At the corporate office in SD people seem very entitled.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You are a company growing about 20% a year ... reward those helping that growth a bit more!

    Pros

    Interesting projects. Great technology and great people to work with.

    Cons

    Management by sloganeering. Atrocious communication. Company is attempting to grow by accretion and is chasing away their best people. The CEO is completely out of touch.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop pretending that you care about quality or that you care about the people who work for you. We all know better.
