    I worked at Magnet Systems full-time

    Pros

    The Palo Alto location on University is nice. Lots of restaurants walking distance.

    Cons

    Comp in business since 2008; no viable product or sales. Morale is low, extremely high turnover rate. 5 heads of engineering in 6 years; latest one left disgruntled after 3 months without notice. CEO is forced to run eng dept now himself. CEO complains that workers are not in office after 5pm, oblivous that many work at home at night. Cannot relate to personnel, no people skills. HR is a joke.New employees are lured with promise CEO will repeat previous success (sold comp for 8 bil) but soon realize he is a one trick pony and leave. Or get fired. CEO/PM have no product vision other than "mobile first". No concrete product requirements.

    Advice to Management

    CEO step back, hire competent staff to run company. Clean house at top. Don't talk about previous company when there were more sales order than fax machines - you have no sales now. Stop saying "It's lonely at the top." Humble yourself.

    Pros

    Worked from home on my own schedule. Just had to complete so many hours of research per week

    Cons

    There were no issues or negative parts of working here. I would say just to offer more hours to contractors for more work.

    Advice to Management

    none

    Thank you for the positive response, however, there may be some confusion. We've never had remote, contractor/researcher positions.
