    StarStarStarStarStar Current Employee in Irvine, California

    Benefits coverage day 1, comprehensive health insurance, all preventive services covered 100%, employer HSA contribution each year helps offset high deductibles, plus additional opportunities to earn more HSA incentives, fantastic on-site Wellness centers with Anthem and Kaiser concierges, free yoga classes and therapist, great 401k plan and educational sessions. Employees just need to research or ask how to use their plans to get the most out of them.

    StarStarStarStarStar Current Principal Firmware Engineer in Milpitas, California

    Salary and equity are not comparable with the rest of the Silicon valley at all! But very flexible work so work from home (whether US or international) is accepted

    Benefits are there similar to any other software company out there. But the plans are not great. You will end up paying so much monthly from your salary if wants a better plan.

    StarStarStarStarStar Current Senior Product Marketing Manager in Milpitas, California

    Its a very old style company, the review cycle is not very fair. If you dont agree with your manager its difficult for you to grow within the company

    Out-of-pocket is high for medical benefits compared to industry standard. Best for those that are healthy. Dental and vision are standard. 401k vest 100% after 4 years. Only good perk is the unlimited PTO (at your manager's discretion).

    StarStarStarStarStar Current Techy in Salt Lake City, Utah

    Best is unlimited PTO, worse is unlimited PTO. My manager encourages to take but don't abuse but sometimes its hard to get away. When you earn it..bank it, feel like you deserve it more

    some of the worst benefits in the industry

    The best thing is the onsite health care. It is very convenient and the doctor is great. As far as drawbacks, the healthcare was downgraded in advance of Obamacare to use a high deductible but with an HSA, but this seems to be the industry trend. Another drawback is that vacation time was recently changed to "unlimited but subject to management approval." What this means in practice is that instead of getting paid for vacation days you don't take, you get nothing. This is especially problematic if you need maternity or medical leave since instead of being able to use accumulated vacation days, you immediately get put on disability.
