    Pros

    The employees at Corsair are outstanding, very helpful and happy

    Cons

    Management, some of the managers are helpful and friendly, some of senior MGMT are too into themselves, and will refer you to their staff, instead of helping you. They seem to be discriminatory towards senior employee, or employees with longevity.

    Broken culture.

    Pros

    Some of the most talented people I've ever met work(ed) at Corsair. Brilliant, passionate people at the manager level on down are a large part of why Corsair's products are as good as they are. If you have hustle, you can move up the chain and get good work experience.

    Cons

    Depth of talent is inversely proportional to position on the chain. By the time you get to Director level and higher, it's a real crap shoot. COO is a horrendous micro-manager whose answer to every problem is to add more bureaucracy, resulting in massive slowdown in development. Then she gets mad things are late. The worst part is that she's inconsistent, so a lot of work gets wasted and nobody knows whether something will get approved or blown up for a completely unpredictable reason. The mandatory return to office also resulted in a mass exodus of talent. Most of the company is decentralized at this point, but that wasn't important. The COO gets heavily involved in creative decisions but has no talent for it, would never have made it in that field on her own, and has basically used her climb up the executive chain as a backdoor to do something she's awful at.

    More honest review than HR-planted reviews

    Pros

    There are people who really believe in the products and teams that are so good at what they do and execute well. It helps when you have a good manager who believes in you and wants growth for you.

    Cons

    COO is the one who runs the place, and makes decisions has a taste that doesn't align with Corsair's identity. She lacks the creative eye, but has the final say in the look and feel. No one says no to her, and upper management generally is disconnected from the people who are knee-deep in bringing excellence to Corsair. What's worse, is that there are constant HR-planted 5.0 reviews on this site to mask the honest reviews that point out flaws. How the company handled the recent layoffs was also inconsiderate for employees. They locked my account within 30 minutes of my layoff notice meeting. This gave me no time to coordinate with my team to hand off projects and information needed for them deal with the transition. I heard my team is still scrambling to figure out how to take over my responsibilities. Again, this is unprofessional and inconsiderate of their own employees.

    Pros

    Nice place to work Some people are welcoming when you get to know them better

    Cons

    Some people will stab you in the back and then throw you under the bus if you don't do what they want. So just need to be weary about the surrounding.
