    I have been working at DeviceScape Software full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Company is turning around and targeting a new market. The team is very committed, and the company is full of very smart, energetic people. The engineering salaries were recently all adjusted, so they now seem very much in line with the rest of Silicon Valley.
    The new office in San Francisco is much better than San Bruno!

    Cons

    It's been rough for a while as customers consolidated, but the new direction targets a completely different set of customers (no more Operators!). We'll see if the transition goes well, but that's always a hard thing to do.

    Advice to Management

    Keep after the Ad market, and make sure to continue rewarding employees well.

    I worked at DeviceScape Software full-time

    Pros

    Smart people. Good product at the time.

    Cons

    A great idea at the time, but the product helped a niche market for a few years prior to LTE being rolled-out. Marketing team pursued flawed direction with gold-plated marketing plans without realizing macro changes in Telco. Another Wi-Fi victim..

    Company is in a poor location (San Bruno), and has no culture.

    Advice to Management

    Shutter the company - now.

    Pros

    Everyone is very friendly and collaborative. There are great working relationships between all departments. Very open in terms of regular All Hands Meetings.

    Cons

    San Bruno is a bit of a strange location but there are shuttles from both the Cal train and the Bart so it isn't that hard to get here so long as you live near one of those systems or have a car. There is free parking so that is great.
