    Pros

    Cafeteria is excellent, beautiful campus, successful core business (storage). Good learning opportunity for new grads. Its a paycheck.

    Cons

    Arrogant incompetent upper management with questionable ethics. Below market compensation. Limited career growth opportunities. Opaque business plan and compensation review. Experienced talent loss accelerating. Flat organization with rampant nepotism in upper management. Useless sycophant board guarantees continued poor company management.

    Advice to Management

    Learn some humility

    Pros

    Competitive salary and benefits are not bad, although they could be improved. Every designer had good chances to learn and to deploy new design techniques.
    Training are offered regularly.

    Cons

    Time for completing a design is becoming shorter and shorter and sometime to get these targets the work is becoming very hard. Quality of results are lower than expected.
    Few career advancement opportunities.

    Pros

    Everything is open to rethinking and redoing...plenty of opportunities to contribute and get creative.

    Cons

    The culture is much different than the typical silicon valley employer. There also appeared to be a layer of unproductive politics in the G&A organization.

    Advice to Management

    Look for opportunities to build trust between management layers. Find trustworthy leaders and shovel more responsibility in their direction.
