    Current Employee - Software Engineer in San Jose, CA
    Current Employee - Software Engineer in San Jose, CA
    Doesn't Recommend
    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    People who have empty lives, who need something to distract them from their current life's problems will find such an artificial high pressure work environment suited to their temprament.

    Cons

    They hire very accomplished and senior people and make them perform repetitive tasks. I have been expected to get off work at 6 pm and starting working in the evening. I get work assigned to me at 7pm on a Friday and due on Monday. This has been happening weekend after weekend . During the week I get just a few hours of sleep everyday. I will not want this life even if I were getting a million dollars annually.

    Advice to Management

    A company's success is based on its strategic directions and operational excellence. Forcing artificial deadlines and not solving a problem at its root cause, approach hardly succeeds. Things have to be well designed for the product to ship in time, and not by setting aggressive deadlines and coming back and continuously redesigning the feature
