Pros

yo will get to learn good technology if yo are given time !!!!
good benefit if yo party with and kiss your boss's feet

Cons

very hierarchy, the first thing people do is look at your title before figuring out how to respond to you.
very south asian (india) way of slavery, of course when 89% of employees are from india and china
no respect from management, out of touch and only worry about their hierarchy

Advice to Management

very poor
lack of experience
some of them still think about a stick, indian slavery style (wake p this is america and things work differently )

    "Great technical work, but lots of pitfalls"

    Current Employee - Engineer in San Diego, CA
    Doesn't Recommend
    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    Job Stability, San Diego ( can be good or bad), Good technical work if you are willing to work hard, Benefits

    Cons

    Salary: Was offered lower than some start ups. HR plays hardball and leaves no room for negotiation ended up getting 6k more than originally quoted. You tend to start off with unhappy employees. Bonuses are probably industry's lowest.

    Team dynamics: Every group has its own kind of politics. Usually it will involve middle management, who does nothing but manage. Most of these people lack technical skills to remain in company, but due to extremely bad review process, they will linger on.

    Most of the middle management is content to manage up and give more work to people under them. So most of the engineers leave after 2-3 years. Bad talent sticks around.

    Advice to Management

    Your review process is broken. Most of the middle management has gone from working to just asking statuses and reporting to their supervisors.
