    Micromanagement drives people down

    Software Engineer (Former Employee)

    ProsProfitable, quiet working environment, free snacks

    ConsLow salary does not match people's contribution.
    Micromanagement requires you submit daily status. They do care when you come, when you leave and how long you go out for lunch.
    People have to spend more time on reporting on every detail of work status than proceed work.

    Long time meetings drag down people's efficiency when they already have heavy work-load
    As long as 1 or even more than 1 hours' TOI meeting is set up once per week to share every detail of one project with the whole team while the other team members are not working on or interested in it at all.

    People quit so frequently that some knowledge could be barely picked up.

    No money = everything

    Software Engineer (Former Employee) San Jose, CA

    ProsFairly light and simple workload
    Experience using various Apache libraries

    ConsVery low base pay, and apparently the HR claims to have done "market research" and claims the wages are "fair with respect to qualification and comparison to other firms". Not sure how they conduct market research, but paying Software Engineers less than 70k a year in the Silicon Valley is certainly not "fair compared to other firms"
    Extremely difficult to get a raise, they always say "you have to prove yourself if you want more raise, not happy with it this year? Prove you are better for next year". The next year rolls around and you get the same thing with a pitiful raise on top of your already terrible base pay
    Task management is poor: you either get loaded with a ton of stuff or you have nothing much to do at all
    Micromanagement, they really care about what time you get there and leave, as well as what your browser is pointing to
    Talking loud at scrum, enjoy reporting at meetings, sending status emails.... all these make you seem much more impressive than doing actual work
    Plenty of tension and politics to go around for everyone
    Expect and demand people to work extremely hard while giving them terrible pay

    Advice to Senior ManagementYou get what you paid for when it comes to engineers. Plenty of smart people work here, but if you don't pay them enough, they probably not going to work for you as hard as you want them to.

    Loglogic needs to reinvent and reposition

    Product Manager (Former Employee) San Jose, CA

    ProsComfortable easy going place for Product Managers
    Decent Base Pay, Bonus and Flex Hours or Product Managers

    ConsDeclining Product Prices and Margins
    Low morale and Large churn in the Engineering Staff
    Too many well connected Agile chickens
    No career growth opportunities for Product Managers

    Advice to Senior ManagementFocus on a few important areas and overall product quality vs. several half baked features and press releases.

    crippled culture. the worst company to work in bay area.

    Engineering (Former Employee) San Jose, CA

    Pros- nice individual contributors
    - Free snacks from vending machine
    - table tennis table in break room
    - table tennis tournaments

    ConsHigh turn over rate due to constant changing management. Dictatorship in engineering after CEO Pat left.
    The management team changes for CEO, president, VP engineering every year or every other year.
    There is no peer review or survey when promoting managers from within. It ends up that good engineers leaving. There is no explanation when someone is let go. People are in the dark and have no idea what happened. There is no exit interview when people resigned.

    Advice to Senior ManagementListen to the engineers who resigned and ask why they left. Have a good planning and schedule to deliver a better quality product.

    Was a great company, but fading quickly

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee) San Jose, CA

    Pros- Leading market position, although seems to be eroding
    - Not too many strong competitors
    - still has a very good chance of success

    ConsManagement changes are too frequent. As a result, direction and culture have been continuously changing. Engineering leadership is currently weak.

    Advice to Senior ManagementNeed to focus on engineering and technology not only on operations and sales.
    Probably need to hire a CTO to focus on technology direction

    Talking Works Better Than Doing

    (Former Employee)

    ProsIf you know how to work the agile system and/or know how to please management, it's not really a whole lot of pressure. The key is to sell yourself as much as possible and make it at least seem like you're accomplishing a lot. Since the agile demo system is all about showing off, the more you do that the better off you'll be.

    ConsIf you really care about creating something, then you're not in the right place. Because the agile system forces you to demo something every 2 weeks or so, you can never really accomplish anything complex unless you do it piecemeal. Think about building a space shuttle from scratch, but having to demo something every 2 weeks so that the management thinks you're doing something.

    Advice to Senior ManagementNone

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Poor Leadership - Unhealthy Organization

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsSmall group of good employees left - mostly in engineering, couple in finance. Hopefully new owners will be able to retain, and figure out who is worth retaining, some of the employees and let go entire executive team.

    ConsPoor leadership - lack of basic leadership skills - lack of integrity. (FYI - The VP of Marketing saw the poor comments about LogLogic on glassdoor.com - told all his employees to go on the site and give positive reviews to help increase LogLogics ratings on the site.) This organization was the most unhealthy I've ever seen. Too many politics, lack of clarity, very low morale, low productivity, high turnover. Lack of a clear strategy and basic marketing.

    Advice to Senior ManagementPlease learn some basic leadership skills. Unfortunately integrity can't be learned, it's just where your value system is, or isn't.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
