    Great learning experience, but a little disorganized and limited opportunities.

    Support Engineer (Current Employee) Fremont, CA

    ProsThe work atmosphere is never hostile, most co-workers are very helpful and friendly, the work pace is typically relaxed, they promote education through their programs.

    ConsThere is a bit of disorganization in terms of information and equipment, sometimes people lack initiative to do work, limited advancement opportunities, and sometimes there are delays in communication.

    Advice to Senior ManagementTry to keep things more organized, enforce work discipline a little more strictly, and pay more attention to off-shifts.

    Lost in the crowd. Loyalty overlooked.

    Support Service (Former Employee) Fremont, CA

    ProsIf you like to code there is a lot of time to work on your own projects.

    ConsAlmost abusive scheduling. Constant unscheduled overtime to cover for other employee's that get treated better do to programming experience.

    Advice to Senior ManagementGet to know some of the non goldenboys. You might be surprised what they can bring to the table.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    A entry-level position with a company of smart people.

    Administrative Assistant (Current Employee) Fremont, CA

    ProsSmart coworkers, fun people, free lunch on Fridays, pets can come in to work (with support engineers and network engineers), working with Internet backbone is relatively interesting, datacenters are awesome

    ConsWithout hard technical skills, difficult to move ahead, no real corporate ladder to climb, some say medical compensation is low for those with families

    Advice to Senior ManagementThanks for being available all the time!

    Don't take a part-time offer

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsFlexibility while on the job, opportunity to grow your technical skills, incentives to get certifications. Staff and admins are overall great.

    ConsPart-timers can get promoted to full-time (after some hoops to jump through) and do the same work, but get paid significantly less. Strange hoops to jump through with petty rewards. Despite making it sound like a developer position, few programming tasks and a terrible environment to code in. Impersonal atmosphere -- you are a replaceable cog in a machine. No real way to move up the ladder as there was no real management structure.

    Advice to Senior ManagementShift coverage is uneven. Please make it clear what you expect from employees. Hiring people you expect to go full-time as part-time in an attempt to pay them less drives down morale.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
