Pros

- some smart and hard working people
- a good deal of cheap labor

Cons

- chaotic release schedule. product marketing pushes features without thinking how much engineering effort it takes.

- new engineering executie and managers coming in, making the workplace a political mess. kiss ass to keep your job.

- ceo said don't worry about the sprint contract expiriing and don't worry about the stock price. focus on building a great company. reliance on sprint contract as 35% of revenue is a setup for failure when the contract expires and if they don't renew then tnav is screwed. even if sprint renews, it may be a big impact on revenue. Stock price has tanked from 20 to 6 forcing layoffs and closure of beijing office.

- don't work here. many better companies in the valley to work for.

- salary is average.

Advice to Management

cut the politics. pay employees more. don't just operate by the letter of the law, but be ethical.

    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    When joining the company, many people were very excited (However, they may leave soon)
    Flexible hours for some people
    Some projects are interesting

    Cons

    Cross-continetal communication is hard. Many people need to have hours of meeting at evenings from Monday to Thursday. It is a waste of time and enthusiasm.

    Product quality is a big concern. This is caused by disorganized structure, mis-communications, and poor management.

    Some D-level managers are not competent.

    Advice to Management

    Hire E and D level executives with a better understanding of this area. Replace incompetent managers. Have a long term for product planning and quality control.
