    Global, but on the cheap, avoid

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) San Diego, CA

    ProsSome great people there but there's little sense of where the company is headed. There are so many other places where you can find inspiring and ethical leadership.

    ConsJobs for the boys, dictatorial, stifling, micromanagement. A small bunch of people dominate the agenda by force of character rather than due to talent or intelligence.

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

    There are fundamental management and business deficiencies that make this a mediocre company - at best.

    Marketing Director (Current Employee) Mountain View, CA

    ProsHealth care benefits are very good, and the company provides adequate personal/vacation time.

    ConsThe CEO of the AUD $250 million corporation makes all business decisions over $15,000 (VP and directors have a $5k/$2k authorization limit respectively). Revenue targets are all set on a top-down view, not bottom-up market focus. Lack of delegation of authority stifles the business, and is a strong indication of lack of trust in people selected to grow the business. Job candidates only talk to very select personnel during interviews, so get a very rosy outlook which is much different than reality. This results in significant dissatisfaction and extremely high management turn over. The company lacks product management and product marketing discipline. Staffing is bare bones, and no-bench strength. Management is weak and takes offense when challenged on decisions. All middle management positions, new and vacated are filled externally - no promotions from within.

    Advice to Senior ManagementMajor fundamental business changes are required at all levels in order to have any potential of meeting revenue targets, and maintaining the talent necessary for any long-term success.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
