    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    Employees are generally very hard working.
    Documentations are well organized.

    Cons

    Work and life balance is the worse issue. And sadly it is not because we have too much work to do. There are too much politics to drag everyone down unnecessarily.

    Managers lack of basic managing skills and only promoted because .. well they are in the tribe(;-

    Many managers are very dishonest. Like a previous review said, they are so afraid to loose their 'kingdom', they do everything to blame on others and make themselves look good. This often involves lies.

    Dishonesty produces very aggressive working environment.

    Advice to Management

    SEND YOUR MANAGERS TO TRAINING.

    "Great place to work...needs more structure"

    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee in San Jose, CA
    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee in San Jose, CA
    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    - Workplace conveniences: Gym, on-site restaurants, laundry, dry cleaning, car wash
    - Attentive managers, relaxer coworkers
    - Opportunities for connecting with coworkers
    - Access to senior management
    - Social events: at least weekly

    Cons

    - Lack of process and procedure for a company of its size
    - Managers who micromanage
    - No work/life balance for most
    - Crowded buildings: I share a cube.

    Advice to Management

    I would advise management to seriously take the feedback from individual contributors on how to make process improvements. The company is seriously heading for trouble if they do not grow their policies with their staff.
