    Pros

    Management team provides clear, visionary message to employees. Ample opportunities for career and professional growth with industry leader. Roadmap and expectations to achieve goals were clearly articulated.

    Cons

    Compensation was below industry standard, especially long term incentive plan. Autocratic cultural values disempowered middle management. Support staffing was uncomfortably lean and seemed close to burnout.

    Advice to Management

    Compare compensation and health benefits with Silicon Valley industry norm.

    Pros

    Interesting work, some freedom to make decisions
    Informal
    Challenging

    Cons

    No strict objectives from upper management makes difficult to choose what to do to progress on your career.
    Pay is low compared to other companies.

    Advice to Management

    Push the executives for higher pays to keep talents in, the company loses good people because of pay, and also makes managers job hard because of quick worker turnaround.

    Pros

    nothing much. you get good work if you are born with golden spoon and if you can worship your manager(need not consider lead incase if you have). If you just obey whatever your manager says you can be lead in 4-5years even though it is product based company. If you dont learn anything just treat the job like data entry job you will have bright future and will be rewarded with promotion and hikes

    Cons

    If you are not of above type you dont get any of the earthquaking offers mentioned above

    Advice to Management

    Great job keep doing the same.
