Pros

- There are several highly competent senior level managers in key roles that you can learn from.
- They offer a great benefit package (Medical, Dental, Vision, 401K, stock, PTO)
- They try to make the work place fun (monthly potlucks, monthly company wide birthday celebrations, etc)

Cons

- The industry overall has shifted and opportunities are limited both within the company as well as in the market.
- For a small company the environment is very bureaucratic
- Some employees are overexerted while others don't have enough to do
- Despite their efforts to maintain morale and a lively culture, they are budget constrained

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Try to hire a CEO that will stick with the company, within the last five years there have been 5 or 6 different CEOs

    Pros

    The change in CEO has brought huge change to the company. People really enjoy working with each other, the silos that existed are getting blown up, people are working on cool new projects in the mobile space, objectives for the company are posted and there's alignment between teams. People laugh and have fun - small enough to know everyone but big enough to have decent perks.

    Cons

    Still work to do to get everyone working as a team. Very dispersed organization - Sunnyvale, London, NY, Sweden - makes schedules and communications challenging.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep open to feedback, be up front about the challenges.

    Pros

    Some of the people are amazing

    Cons

    Certain managers are promoted but not held accountable and feel that anything negative is their report's problem and don't help resolve in a constructive manner.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make Managers accountable for their team's performance and don't allow them to take credit for their team's success when you know they aren't impacting that success.
