Negative Outlook

I have been working at SeaMicro full-time (More than a year)

Pros

The relationship between teams and employees is generally good.
The CEO is quite open.
Very good base salary, The total compensation may not be up to Google's level. But it's much higher than the typical tech companies in the bay area.
9 free meals each week and free drink/snack
Normally, no overtime is required.

Cons

Not sure why the product is not selling. Worse, it doesn't seem that anyone in the company can figure it out.
Because of the bad sale number, the bonus is minimum, if there is anything at all.
Some teams at the critical path are consistently under-staffed while some other teams are bloated and let people sit idle for weeks/months.

    I worked at SeaMicro full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    lunch was provided, and ample free desk space available throughout the building

    Cons

    went out of business. The ample desk space had more to do with headcount than furniture design.

    Advice to Management

    obtain profitability or bail and sell off IP, earlier
