    "A good idea... poorly executed"

    • Senior Management
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee in Mountain View, CA
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee in Mountain View, CA
    Doesn't Recommend
    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    - Flexible work hours, little overtime, low stress
    - Most staff are nice and many are very talented
    - Lots of free food
    - Occasionally technically interesting

    Cons

    - No technical or business strategy
    - No focus or ability to distinguish between what's important and what's not
    - No communication within teams, between teams, or between working-level and management
    - Little management respect for working-level staff
    - Almost zero wireless/telecom experience amongst management
    - No HR department (surprisingly harmful)
    - Wild, wild west-type development "process" (and not in a good way)

    Advice to Management

    This company's problems are institutional. There has been little change in leadership in the past five years. Perhaps a clean sweep of Sales, Engineering, and the C-level would breathe new life into the organization.


  2. "A very secretive place"

    Doesn't Recommend
    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    Cool technology - a good idea for providing important information to carriers

    Cons

    Senior management - very secretive and not forthcoming

    Advice to Management

    Be more transparent with/towards your employees. Trust them, and perhaps they will trust you at least a little more.
