Great company... declining over last couple of years

Senior Staff Engineer (Current Employee)
San Jose, CA

ProsProvides a good work life balance. I still work for a old timer boss hence life is still good. Technology is pretty interesting to work with. Lot of good engineers around however many are leaving.

ConsNew management is a turn-off. Too much politics in last five years. Too many committees and discussion but very little decision making. Marketing is very incompetent dragging down the company. Only politicians get promoted.

Advice to Senior ManagementWork on a true facts driven method and decision making. Get a new marketing team all together. Do whatever it takes to retain good engineers and kick out the managers (too many of them).

More technical training availability - not just managerial training. Encourage and invite input from… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend More
