Pros

The engineers are the smartest most capable bunch I have worked with in my career.

The executives have no clue how to run the company. Their success is based on luck and they are proud to repeat the same mistakes over and over again.

Advice to Management

Get a new marketing and PR team.

    Approves of CEO

    Pros

    Excellent co-workers and leadership. Culture of freedom and responsibility is taken seriously and results in an productive and mature working environment.

    Cons

    The culture leads to a necessity to communicate. Folks who do not want to communicate honestly will falter. It also critical to take initiative. Those with a lack of initiative will struggle.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to reward results and creativity. The culture works by having the right people at the company. Keep it up!

    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    Pay is great, but save your money... the severance package will only last you so long.

    Cons

    Most of the "benefits" of being an exempt employee come with a very high price tag. I am not just talking about the unusually high salaries. Sure, you can take "as much time off as you want" if you don't mind spending that time worrying about if you'll have a job when you get back, or hell... even getting the time to take a vacation at all. The culture of fear is VERY real. There is zero work life balance. When I started I was suprised to see so many 30 somethings who were single and had no kids. I learned quickly that it's almost the only way to keep your job. 60 hours a week doesn't work when you have a family or even a significant other, especially when what precious time you do have off you are worried about work. Feedback is relative to who is giving it. I received my first real feedback session after I interviewed for a position 6 months after being hired. I received positive feedback, then was laid off 2 weeks later.

    Advice to Management

    The culture of fear is developed from the top down. While "freedom and responsibility" sounds great on paper, my experience was better described as "uncertainty and pressure". I am not someone who is unfamiliar with hard work and giving everything I have... but if you are not clear as toi how much is enough it leaves you with a pit of stress in your stomach.
