    Pros

    nice people (some), some people are willing to teach and learn; location - Palo Alto; global company; free coffee and milk; cafe is eatable; smaller company so easier to come to decisions.

    Cons

    company did not care about employees, responded to shareholders only; layoff to the point where only one person is left to any area; no changes a lot of manual processes; no budget for anything except for executive pays; keep everything as-is; not challenges.

    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    The freedom you have with your job. Compensation is good. Good products to work on. A lot of opportunity for travel. Local management is very supportive and understanding - they stand behind you and your decisions when needed. Coworkers are very knowledgeable and helpful. Very understanding when things come up in personal life. Very good bonus compensation program. Other co workers make themselves very available when they are needed.

    Cons

    Benefits (health, dental, retirement, etc) are among the worst I've seen. Tended to have a knee jerk reaction to the economic downturn - more layoffs than probably needed. Upper management is blind.

    Advice to Management

    More feedback would be appreciated.
