Pros

Wonderful people, excellent software. One of the better companies I have worked for. Good benefits, option to WFH and decent pay. I am very happy.

Cons

Not many cons. Morale has had it's ups and downs with every new CEO but I think Marisa knows what she is doing and every one seems to have gotten a morale boost with her on board.

Advice to Management

Keep up the good work!

    Pros

    Great environment to work in. Main campus was extremely comfortable. Great flexibility and work-life balance.

    Cons

    The people used to be the reason to work there. Smart, engaged, excited and passionate. Then everyone got lazy and morale was low...probably around the time Jerry & Dave decided not to sell to MSFT.

    Pros

    Nice people. Good work environment

    Cons

    What the hell is up with their leadership? The revolving door holds no optimistic outlook for me. They let good people go just to cut costs. Not good.

    Advice to Management

    Focus. Become Tech company again. Focus on making the technology that can compete and overtake the googles, twitters and facebooks of the world.
