    I worked at 7 Layers full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    They like to keep employees st 20 hours or less. This creates a environment which is negative and does not promote helpful working environment

    Cons

    Use as a stepping stone then move onto full time with competetors

    Advice to Management

    When you state fairness then do as you state, When you allow dirty soil to mix withbthr good soil, trees will never take root.

    Pros

    Flexible with schedule and hours.

    Cons

    High employee turnover. Does not seem like employee retention is a focus and they treat everyone as expendable. No room for career growth either.

    I worked at 7 Layers (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    You will be exposed to new technologies in the cellular/ wireless world. Great for those interested in entering the tech world such as students or those with no experience. Set working hours for part timers. OT is kept at a minimum.

    Cons

    Being a small company, the salary is among the lowest in the valley. Not willing to hire local talent, but rely on lower salaried out-of-state talent. The Sunnyvale location is the poor relative of the Irvine main office.

    Advice to Management

    Realize the cost of living in Silicon Valley and budget salaries commensurate with the area. Yearly performance reviews are lacking and lacks proper salary compensation. Pay closer attention to the needs of the Sunnyvale location as the 'action' is in Silicon Valley. Also, lacking a dedicated sales department for this site.

    Pros

    Working style is independent and no micromanagement. Working hours are fair.
    Management is approachable and understanding. Gives young professionals opportunities to grow in the organizations. Great benefits.

    Cons

    No cons. Salary is less competitive than others but a great place to start for young working professionals.

    I have been working at 7 Layers part-time

    Pros

    You pick your own schedule, very chill. Staff is nice and very helpful. More pay if you work on weekends or graveyard shifts. Sometimes free food from different countries like Germany, Korea, etc. Do not need much knowledge at first, you can learn as you go. More of a system learning than engineering expertise. You get to test on cool devices like new phones from different countries, pace makers, motherboards, etc.

    Cons

    No bonuses or benefits really. There is PTO and like certificate awards for being the worker of the month but that is it. No raises either.

    Advice to Management

    Should implement a raise system to the workers doing a good job.

    Pros

    could be a great place to work but the management don't have a clue or don't care

    Cons

    staff moral is very low
    meant to be an engineering company but most of the work is done by part time
    work conditions are not nice

    Advice to Management

    go find another job
