Nothing Great

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) Fremont, CA

ProsPay is OK (base+bonus+ESPP). Could do better given the work. Nothing else to think of for 'Pro'

Cons-Not much room to grow or to get promoted,
-There is excessive work, cannot balance work/life, should allow work from home at least once a week, since most people are working 7 days a week anyway!
-Benefits are very poor, health plan is really horrible
-Forced vacation, forced shutdown, almost no vacatiions hours remain in your balance
-Very poorly organized, no rigorous documentation, no robust training program
-Some people have no work, easy jobs but have been able to survive in the company while some folks are getting squeezed due to ever increasing work load

Advice to Senior ManagementCare for the people who actually 'work'

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
