Disapproves of CEO

Pros

Great benefits. Agile. They treat you like an adult. Desire to be innovative. It is a hard to think of anything else.

Cons

Very secretive of important matters. Too top heavy with a countless assortment of VPs. Tout innovation, but do not deliver or give true incentive to innovate. Does a horrid job retaining its top talent, especially for a company that sells "talent intelligence".

Advice to Management

Stop hitting on all the buzz words and start innovating. Listen to your employees. Redesign and rewrite your products. Stop lowballing people you need to help your company thrive.

    Pros

    Work with some great people

    Cons

    After it's acquisition of Vurv, the vibrant atmosphere of the office was lost and replaced by an overall sense of humdrum.
    Too many layers of management for my taste.

    "Sr. Mgmt maintains a very elitist attitude toward employees and disregards work/life balance."

    Pros

    East bay HQ location with proximity to BART station.

    Cons

    Long hours in a "hire and fire" atmosphere. No time for employee development. Stock grants are paltry or non-executives.
