    Pros

    Offers great opportunities to work in difference team environments. Celebrates diversity and many positions have flexible work-life balance features. Benefits are somewhat competitive with 401k matching.

    Cons

    The actual salaries tend to be on par or a little less than the competition and annual raises are generally at or below the rate of inflation. Changing jobs is critical to salary growth and career advancement.

    Advice to Management

    If annual salary increases are going to be kept low even for high performing team members, then the company should consider basing profit sharing and bonus payouts on performance to reward higher performers without making additional salary commitments.

    Pros

    Great place to work in downtown SF. The office mates are really some of the most awesome people.

    Cons

    Upper management are only interested in the short term and have messed up great teams by outsourcing projects to subpar offshore companies. Internal politics means good people in management get sidelined

    Advice to Management

    Stop outsourcing. Let teams build what they can. And keep the vultures from capturing the good parts.
