    Be very aware of this place.

    Project Manager (Former Employee)
    San Jose, CA

    ProsGood people who work together as a team. As professionals, a group doesn't work harder.

    ConsPromotions are based on seniority and not necessarily merit. Best practices are never explored and only insiders' ideas are entertained and implemented without informed discussion. Knowledge transfer is terrible and internal training is non-existent. Management assumes 24/7 dedication from their employees.

    Advice to Senior ManagementPlease listen to the grumblings of those in the office. Unhappiness does not encourage loyalty.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Veraz - not great but pretty good.

    Business and Finance (Former Employee)
    San Jose, CA

    ProsCareer opportunities and advancement is a big plus. Intelligent people to work with. Good product line with established and diversified customer base. Good company culture and a company that treats its employees fairly. Competitive compensation and benefits. Can be a fun place to work

    ConsManagement communication was lacking at times. Some lack of vision in planning for the future. Unwillingness at times to make tough decisions. A certain amount of 'old boys club' attitude when forming the decision making coterie in the company.

    Smaller company with difficulty in penetrating large named accounts is holding back the company from really taking off. Sales leadership is somewhat lacking.

    Advice to Senior ManagementAllow the functional leaders to be more independent and handle their own areas. Do not allow escalation of every issue all the way to the top

    Neutral to negative

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
    San Jose, CA

    ProsLots of exciting technologies to be involved with. Very smart engineering team to work with, and great talent.

    ConsDoes not have a direction for growth, and can be very short-sighted in terms of vision. Some teams are quite overworked.

    Advice to Senior ManagementManagement needs to wake up. Needs to be engaged in areas other than just immediate sales, and meeting numbers, i.e. see the bigger picture. Needs to figure out a plan for future growth, then invest, shed non-productive lines, then and observe if you are succeeding. Repeat. Can't just be be so watchful of what the investment community demands.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
