    Not much room for growth, no annual reviews

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) Santa Clara, CA

    ProsGood people that work there, casual environment, benefits WERE okay at one point but has become worse...depending on your manager they could be flexible with letting you take time off.

    ConsCompany is completely disorganized.
    Lack of procedures so things may be done differently depending on who is doing the job.
    A lot of finger pointing rather than taking ownership of mistakes which ends up wasting everyones time because meetings will go in circles.
    No annual reviews - therefore majority of employees do not get a raise.
    No room for growth, if upper management leaves, the company does not promote from within. They would rather spend extra money to hire someone from the outside to take the open spot.
    Lack of control on cash flow...could be better now with new management...

    Advice to Senior ManagementManagement needs to appreciate their employees for their hard work by giving reviews and letting them know what they improved on and what they need to improve on.
    Employees learn from their management--if management is not willing to take ownership of their mistakes, they are leading by example.
