Pros

Startup Atmosphere
Extremely Casual Work Environment, shorts, jeans, and flipflops common
Easy Access to Management
Possibilities of rapid growth and advancement
Close knit atmosphere within teams.
Good access to new technology and involvement in a new emerging market

Cons

Startup Atmosphere
Management overreaches on their analysis of new markets and market segments, leading to poor company performance.
Overly competitive between teams
Elitist attitude among engineers within the organization, if you aren't an engineer, you are generally seen as nothing.

Advice to Management

Management needs to communicate much better with the organization on a regular basis. Don't wait till 2 days after a quarter ends to inform the entire organization that you just randomly came up with a plan to cut salaries based on events that just happened. The entire company knows that you've known about our performance issues financially for quite some time, yet the hiring spree continued and now we all suffer.
Keep up the casual atmosphere but tighten the belts a little bit. Employees would much rather deal with one less bbq or coffee talk per month then having to take 5 and 10% pay cuts.
Overall its a strong company and an industry leader in its segment, but its time to play with the big boys and realize that either this company is going to make it big, or its going to burn out quick.

    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    Very laid back, easy jobe.

    Cons

    The Cons are the same. This place is going to get crushed by the competition. Work ethic is non-existent. Great place to work if you want to coast. Not if you want to accomplish anything.

    Advice to Management

    If you want to be a real technology company, step up.
