    Bliss then disappointment

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee) Santa Clara, CA

    ProsGreat people, great core tech, nice work environment. You will be surrounded by people who know and love graphics.

    ConsManagement practices leave a lot to be desired (herd theory of manpower), flawed business plan, too many directions at once. Design processes arcane, spaghetti-like, and poorly documented. Poor utilization of talent.

    Advice to Senior ManagementFocus on the core business that has true ROI. revise and rethink what you are doing. Don't approach the world with, "hey, we got this great hammer, where are you nails?"

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

    Engineer

    Software Engineer (Former Employee) Santa Clara, CA

    ProsLearning experience, some good engineers

    ConsLower to average pay and benefits, all work no play, expect to work on weekends and late nights (if this is your thing, then this is the perfect place for you if pay is not an issue), CEO calls all the shots and everyone follows, little to no chance of moving up.
    In summary this is a good place for college grad to get experience then leave in a year or two

    Advice to Senior ManagementNot much to say except all the talented people leave after a year or two

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