What Employees Say
I worked at FEI for more than a year
Really great people and team! Part of FEI and now part of a bigger company but still has somewhat of a small company vibe at Fremont location. Fun place to be and lots of opportunities for... developing projects. There are events throughout the year. This is a place where what you get out of it depends on your efforts. Also, the manager I had was super awesome.
Due to acquisitions, some of the company culture was disrupted and has become more corporate. This is due to budgeting and lack of effort to keep good people around.
Advice to Management
This is to the corporate management. Provide the same budget to the division as it had before. It doesn't make sense to expect the same profit output when positions aren't getting filled or even... budgeted for. There's a lack of talent for the amount of work that needs to be done so there are people who have to work extra hard. Upper management also needs to listen to the managers and employees that have a better understanding of what products will sell and what direction the company should head because the plans are not measuring up to competitors. Please include the right people in these meetings.
I have been working at New Relic full-time for more than a year
The attitude around here is very positive and I am not just trying to plug the company. People are treated with respect, executive leadership is courteous and down to earth. There is a lot of... opportunities to grow and take on new challenges. I didn't realize what a good company really was until I got here and I have worked at some major global companies. The feel here is to build a long term company that will last by building great products and having a deep vision, as opposed to salting the earth looking for more revenue and letting the products slide... And yes, great offsite meetings used to connect and learn with coworkers out of the office.
Normal growing pains that come with scale. Because of the growth and success of the company leadership has been known to get headhunted for bigger opportunities then New Relic can offer. This can be... stressful but everyone seems to take it in stride, they let things evolve and we all seem to grow and mature.
Advice to Management
Keep coaching and growing your talent.
