    Engineer

    Mechanical Engineer (Former Employee) Mountain View, CA

    ProsThis is a great place to learn. Small company so very hands on.

    ConsDon't look for any type of advancement at this company. Be ready to be belittled by the owner Nahum Guzik.

    Advice to Senior ManagementNo one on your staff could care less about what they do as long as they don't mess up and get yelled at by the owner they're happy.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    Nahum Guzik is a Screamer

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee) Mountain View, CA

    ProsFree food if you work on Saturdays.

    ConsI think the experience working at Guzik is different for everyone, but it's very dependent it the owner/CEO likes you. You could hear him screaming at people from across the building. This is a small company with awful politics.

    Advice to Senior ManagementMore professionalism...any professionalism...

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Good

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) Mountain View, CA

    ProsChallenging environment, professional coworkers, you will never get bored with what you do, very dynamic. Benefits are good, salaries are above average.

    ConsBe prepared to work overtime, a bunch of russians around, speaking russian, acting russian. Management is generally pushy, make you work hard.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    You will survive and grow professionally if you are a good specialist, but do not expect to have a pleasant experience.

    Software Engineer (Former Employee) Mountain View, CA

    ProsIt is a good company to start working in USA for H1 visa holder. You are getting a good package on the beginning, OK salary, good benefits, and they starts a Green Card process. Company has a good lawyer and good reputation so you gonna be safe with documents, loans and credits (don't need to have any credit history).

    ConsCareer growing depends not from your professional skills and input but from your personal relations with CEO. Be prepared working on Saturdays, late nights and short vacations. Company is hardware oriented and conservative on used software techniques, so your software experience can be a little outdated you be back on market.

    Advice to Senior ManagementPay attention to people requests.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Very challenging work environment... Good salary and benefits... Be prepared for a bumpy ride ...

    Software Engineer (Current Employee) Mountain View, CA

    ProsGood salary, great medical/vision/dental family insurance, opportunity to work with ABSOLUTELY NEW technologies, very creative and talented team of hardware and software engineers.

    ConsGuzik is a private company and in a nut shell it is a playground for its president Nahum Guzik. If you manage to keep a good relationship with him, your life can be decent, otherwise it can be quite miserable. Disrespect to subordinates is a common place at Guzik TE.

    Advice to Senior ManagementThe thing is, the only REAL manager, i.e. the person who decides what should be done on each and every level, is the president. And he NEVER takes any advices from anyone...

    You'd better really know what you'll have to do in order to stay hired and get you pay check

    Software Engineer (Former Employee) Mountain View, CA

    ProsFast track for Green Card, challenging technical environment (aka short development cycles)

    ConsSweat shop, employees are treated like a slaves, personal relationships prevail upon professional/business ones, "swamp" for new immigrants - easy to join but hard to escape

    Advice to Senior ManagementI believe the management system has been perfected for decades. The CEO really knows what's going on so I do not think any advice is really welcome.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
