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

Pros

Talented and hard working individual contributors who care. Potential to wear many hats and develop new skills. Middle management and lower guys stepping up to right the ship by standing up to executives. Good work-life balance, great location (downtown Mountain View), will pay for CalTrain.

Cons

Executive team makes poor decisions and doesn't know how to lead a team. While announcing downsizing, leaders are spending frivolously at Vegas for CES, sending HR (??!!!?!), adding insult to injury amid layoffs.

Advice to Management

CEO should clean house on upper management. Listen to your employees.

    I have been working at Speck full-time

    Pros

    great people who work hard.

    Cons

    lack of processes, lack of follow through; General disrespect to the lower tiered people. While in the middle of layoffs and generally creating a culture of fear and intimidation in the workplace, the higher ups are all partying it up in vegas for CES. Even people that do not need to be there, like HR. While in the meantime they are cutting costs and jobs in order to save money. Its a huge slap in the face to everyone who got laid off.

    Advice to Management

    stop treating the lower tiered people like scum. Show them a modicum of respect.

    "Sorry decline"

    Pros

    Love a lot of the hard-working and smart people I work with. Unfortunately they are not the decision-makers, or if they make decisions, the decisions are undone by people who have their own agendas and not the best interest of the company in mind.

    Cons

    Ineffective team. Lack of leadership, poor/non-logical decision-making. It's a real shame; they took a fantastic group of people and ran the company into the ground. They don't care that good people are leaving.

    Advice to Management

    You clearly either don't care or don't have a clue as to what the market wants and what it takes to be competitive. Please leave before you kill the company.
