OK place to gain different experience

Software Engineer (Current Employee) Oakland, CA

ProsAlmost no politics (except probably in higher management); exposed to various access technologies; flexible working hours (even working from home sometimes); free sodas; free lunch every friday; relatively quiet environment;

ConsExpect only salary as the source of income (plus benefits). No bonus, no 401k match, no raise, rubbish stock price, stagnant IT facilities (imagine using a pentium4 to develop software with the first generation 15" LCD screen in a cubicle shared with another coworker); horrible software engineering process (no design docs, inefficient code commit)

Advice to Senior ManagementThe upper management needs more active in finding a road map. What, Where and when the company to be in 1,3,5 years and create strategies to achieve that.
