    Pros

    A great working environment for the employees. The employees truly care for one another here. Many opportunities available to contribute.

    Cons

    Fast-paced and changing business. Expected to work hard and outside the normal business hours/workdays. Must be flexible to work here.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to improve communication. Managers should be provided the necessary training to be effective managers.

    A daily opportunity to be personally and professionally challenged to be the best that I can be.

    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee  in  Sunnyvale, CA
    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee in Sunnyvale, CA

    Pros

    Professional growth is encouraged.
    Interaction with Exec Staff is frequent and positive.
    Ambiance/building/location are the best I have ever experienced. It's like working in a beautiful Italian Villa. Meals are frequently provided with alfresco dining on a patio with a huge fountain.
    Pet Friendly, there are even pets on the website.

    Cons

    If you are just content to be cog in the wheels of progression, you probably won't fit in at innoPath.
    If you are not deadline driven, the innoPath environment can be stressful.
    If you aren't comfortable with a "start-up" milieu, then innoPath would be too intense for you.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue frequent communications to employees - these are so very important.
    Continue to support the importance of creating clear processes to ensure: obsessively impassioned support of customers, and enthusiastic personnel.

    What's everyone complaining about?

    • Comp & Benefits
    • Work/Life Balance
    • Senior Management
    • Career Opportunities
    Former Employee - Unemployed for a long time  in  Sunnyvale, CA
    Former Employee - Unemployed for a long time in Sunnyvale, CA

    Pros

    InnoPath is a job. I'm not sure why everyone is complaining. A job is where you trade time for money and in that respect InnoPath meets all the basic requirements.

    One of the best things about InnoPath is that they really expect very little of their employees. If you set your personal goals and values aside and simply do what your boss tells you to do, you will be fine and probably highly regarded by Management.

    This notion that in Silicon Valley, each of is going to make an impact is silly. Grow up and face the reality that everyone is just a laborer. The only difference is that your degree gets you a 6 figure salary instead of an hourly wage. Self actualization is not part of the deal. If you can get your head around this concept, you can survive and actually thrive at InnoPath.

    Why else would you be happy at InnoPath?

    1. The pay is decent.
    2. The benefits are decent
    3. The workload is manageable (Provided you do only what you are told)
    4. They let you bring your dog to work.
    5. The building is comfortable, easy to access, and has plenty of parking.
    6. They feed you dinner!

    Finally, and most importantly, unlike other companies, the rules of the game at InnoPath are very easy to follow.

    1. There is only one person you need to please. Figure out what that person likes to hear and say it often.

    2. Don't make decisions. Regardless of what you have been told, you are not being paid to make any calls. Executive management is very willing and happy to make all decisions for you. They do not hold it against you for asking them for their advice on mundane issues.

    3. Avoid conflict. The path of least resistance is always the path you want to be on.

    4. Accept that even if you follow 1 through 3, nothing in life is guranteed and you could still find yourself out of a job next month.

    In summary, InnoPath is not Hell nor is it Nirvana. It is a job that pays decently for as long as it lasts. To all the whiners out there, suck it up and be glad you have or had a job as long as you did.

    Cons

    Too many people spend their time complaining about the place.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire nothing but people who have been out of work for at least 6 months and who's homes are in pre-forclosure. The morale will improve and there will be much less negative energy in the place.

    Very disappointing experience. Only take a position at InnoPath in desperation.

    Pros

    - No need to work hard.
    - Decent pay.
    - Located close to good places to eat on El Camino Real.
    - Foosball and pool table, although the QA people pretty much are always using them.

    Cons

    - Tremendous amount of senior management micromanaging leads to no personal initiative.
    - Lack on any clear strategy or corporate goals.
    - Weak management team.
    - Most of the good engineering talent has left.
    - Very hard to get anything done unless the CEO has personally approved and is shepherding it.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    - Management is weak and needs to be replaced.

    Doesn't Recommend
