Former Employee - Principal Engineer in Santa Clara, CA
Disapproves of CEO

Pros

* Working environment is relaxed and comfortable
* Compensation is very competitive to other companies with a good bonus on base salary
* Could be a good place to learn and gain knowledge
* Big company that can afford to tackle big markets and product lines
* Did not lay off as aggressively as other companies during the recession

Cons

* Very political in terms of career advancement
* European management is a disaster. No clear vision of what they want to do. Very slow in taking critical decisions. Can let valuable people leave the company easily.
* There are good peers but also more than what could afforded of mediocre engineers

Advice to Management

When a product fails due to management mistakes, managers should be affected and not engineers. In order to compete with American companies change has to happen at the top.

    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    Compressed Workweeks, decent cafeteria, hilarious international Q&A board.

    Cons

    Poor reviews. As a tech, credit seemed to be given to those who sent the most emails versus those output the most work. Better raises are given to people who do zero work but make themselves the most vocal, while the others pick up the slack.

    Don't count on hard work getting you appreciation.

    Advice to Management

    Pay the good employees better, trim the fat (literally), and quality employees might stick around


  2. "Dysfunctional organization but easy place to work at."

    Pros

    healthy work environment, laid back take it easy eurpoean mentality, I haven't worked anywhere else but i hear benefits and pay are pretty competitive.

    Cons

    management seems to lack direction, difficult to gain visibility for work done, dysfunctional and confusing organization with lots of overlapping functions.

    Advice to Management

    get away from the penny pinching attitude, most frequent travellers still don't have data cards and smart phone data plans. Emplyees are still forced to fly economy on 20+ hr flights to asia
