    Stellar co-workers and strong mgt, but many of them moved on when the business was no longer growing.

    I worked at iPass full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    My boss was pretty cool, vacation time was no issue, salary was competitive, pretty nice people all around.

    Cons

    Very difficult to move around, not much growth so everyone is locked into their position and fighting to resurrect the place and occasionally butting heads as a result. There was some bad energy from downsizing that was happening but most of that attitude was RIF'ed. It's just a tough environment for the people there to bring out their best.

    Advice to Management

    I think they have the right idea: turn the place around (business shrank immensely) and get the share price up, but that'd probably take some really harsh private equity style re-org to accomplish if it's even possible at all. Best of luck, I'd tell you what to do if I knew.

    Pros

    Great people to work with Nice central location on the peninsula Decent pay and they have a pretty flexible schedule

    Cons

    People in upper management rolls that should not be there. A lot of gossiping, usually started by upper management. Management not in touch with employees.

    Advice to Management

    Stop letting go of the great employees and keeping the bad ones. It is really hard to fix a company when all use are band aids, instead of fixing the main issues.

    Great teamwork, depending on the team you're working on; decent benefits; middle management is good

    Low-ball on salary; company-wide meetings attempt to quell fear of anyone holding stock options


  8. Good niche service offerings. The people you work with make it a good place to work. Technology is advanced.

    I worked at iPass full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    I used to have many, but now I can only say the following. *Some good people to work with. *The benefits are good. *Pay was good

    Cons

    This company is falling apart. They used to have a ton of highly technical and motivated people, but they have since left for greener pastures. Any recent people of value were allowed to walk out the door with no concern. The executives are just riding it out and hoping someone will buy the company, but I don't see that happening. They have brought on a few talented execs recently, but let them go the second there was any momentum taking hold. Really kind of sad.

    Advice to Management

    Move on and let someone else try to save this company. Ask yourself what you have done to improve this company in the last 5 years and if you think that you actually have done something, you need to realize it was not enough. It's time to pivot this company before it's too late!
