    I worked at Flash Networks full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Has some good leaders in the support area.

    Cons

    Company appears to be facing some serious economic conditions as it laid off a large number of people from its Mobixell Networks acquisition in June 2014.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Needs to figure out what it wants to be instead of acquiring companies to buy customers.

    I worked at Flash Networks full-time

    Pros

    - Great technical engineers. Great place to learn and share information with other engineers.
    - Working with cutting edge technologies.
    - Working from home.

    Cons

    - Formalized training is non-existent.
    - Direct management is hot-headed and childish and treat their people badly.
    - No compensation for the work that you do. Bonuses are a joke.
    - Company consistently over promises and under delivers to the customer.
    - Engineers are burned out often working 80-120 hours per week with no compensation.
    - Working from home. Company expects you to be at their beckon call 24/7
    - No quality of life and management doesn't care.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    - Hire more people. You are killing the people who are there.
    - Send you managers to management training. They need to learn to be leaders.
    - Managers need training in crisis management. Their "sky-is-falling" mentality tends to fall on deaf ears after a while.

    I was not fired or laid off. I quit because I had enough. No matter how much you work and how much you accomplish, you are never appreciated for the work that you do.

    I have been working at Flash Networks full-time

    Pros

    A change to work on different aspects of the company's core product, both hardware and software. Excellent medical benefits. Mostly working out of home.

    Cons

    Hectic schedule - need to self-manage especially since you are working alone (physically) at home. Training program is lacking.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus on managing and growth of your staff. Need more communication on the company's vision and future.
