Good working environment and good people.

Poor management. Need to increase salary regularly.

    Pros

    Excellent bonus structure
    Exciting work on cutting edge technology
    Employee purchase discount
    2 year ESPP pricing window (but only 5% discount)

    Cons

    No raises, promotions hard to come by, long hours, pressure to work into evening to get work done. Coach class travel overseas

    Advice to Management

    Consider raises on a more regular basis. Keep up the bonus structure and keep employees informed. Consider better travel accommodations on planes.


  2. Demanding, long hours, poor insurance, good bonus

    Pros

    Great manager, challenging, location (southern CA), good bonus. Input is valued and solicited by management, no issues with speaking your mind.

    Cons

    Medical insurance is designed for healthy singles person. 6K in network, 6K out of network deductible - seems doctors are in network and labs / surgery centers are out of network. Long hours, worked holidays, which leads to burn out.

    Advice to Management

    Given the Hitachi merger - keep Hitachi's enterprise and SSD products. Do something about the long hours and poor insurance - Hitachi employees will jump ship over this.
