I have been working at Penguin Computing full-time for more than 8 years
Pros – If you are willing to come up a solution to a problem you can get it implemented.
Cons – Sometime people do not take ownership of a problem and just pass the buck
Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

I have been working at Penguin Computing
Pros – Free soda
Direct boss was smart and a go-getter
Cons – Rats, roaches, leaking ceilings
The ceiling would leak in the factory where racks are built. One time there was a puddle on the floor with an extension cord in it.
The factory and burn in room temp ranges from 80-90 degrees on an average day. We were building high tech equipment and not even taking care of it.
CFO at the time ordered us to ship racks he knew weren't ready so he could take the revenue, saying he'd send a guy on site to fix them later.
In fighting over POLITICS to the point of fighting between departments. Not company politics. Actual politics.
No money to do anything at all. Company is so focused on sales they neglect to build up the infrastructure.
Lot of people 'work from home' and are never in the office or available.
Basic procedures are not in place. Most people thought it was a start-up.
Advice to Senior Management – None. At a loss. Scrap it.
No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
