Outdated and Out of Touch

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee) Fremont, CA

Prosdecent pay
great people to work and travel with
lots of personalities to learn from
great technologists who are willing to share and collaborate
ample free lunches and dinners

Conssweatshop for all engineers and technicians
no communication from senior management
senior management lock themselves in their offices
bicker with customer - philosophy of "customer is right only when they agree with us"
do not understand the needs of the customer
in-fighting between technical and marketing deparments
poor market research / understanding
loyalty is strictly a one-way street
lead from behind

Advice to Senior Managementunderstand the voice of the market
understand the voice of the customer
involve yourselves with the "common worker" at all levels at least once quarterly
be as straightforward with the employees as you expect them to be with you
in other words, follow the advice of the "best" CEOs, and follow the "Golden Rule"
Think about how these things stifle innovation.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
