    Former Employee - Product Development Engineer in Santa Clara, CA
    Former Employee - Product Development Engineer in Santa Clara, CA
    Approves of CEO

    Pros

    -cafeteria & breakrooms- is it a bonus to not eat a single meal at home? Maybe you work to much.
    -a few, kind veterans colleagues...

    Cons

    -entrench "cave-dwelling" fire-breathing dragons, oh my!
    -if you never change your core technology you never have to learn, grow or accept new ideas or people(s).

    Advice to Management

    VP with Sr. directors must together take charge to work for change. This change is to better compete with existing & different market and make your new products successful from release. The cost-cutting strategy has been obtuse & harsh on the loyal, long-term temp "recycled" employees.
