    Pros

    They had a ping pong table in the gym which was pretty solid. Oh and the free food they had at lunches sometimes. And drinks.

    Cons

    The company no longer exists. They had a poor environment. It was always depressing because people were getting laid off left right and centre.

    Advice to Management

    Stop firing people. Its depressing. Pick a direction and go with it and go with the one thats going to make you money.


  2. "Experience has gone down after layoffs"

    Approves of CEO

    Pros

    People are friendly.
    Atmosphere is generally good.
    Processes are good.
    Employer has a good health plan and goes above and beyond for people with health issues.

    Cons

    Most of the growth seems to be in India
    Management focus is divided between Mountain View and India and centers mostly on India
    Feels understaffed after the layoff with some voluntary turnover after the layoff.
    Okay for hardware, not a great place to work for software.

    Advice to Management

    Need to get a better buy-in from employees to work with India because employees see it as nickel and dime cost cutting and not a good long term approach. Need better incentives to keep good software engineers because even though the economy is down, hiring for programmers has increased.
