Fast-paced work environment, well-run company

Staff Engineer (Current Employee)
San Jose, CA

ProsLean, well-run company. Get exposed to and work with technologies from many different fields.

ConsSomewhat of a sweatshop... more so nowadays than in years past. A reflection of the brutal PC industry.

Advice to Senior Management"The No A**hole Rule" should be required reading for upper mgmt. There are a lot of 'em at this company and in this business.

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