    I worked at InFocus full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Jupiter Systems was a great company to work for. The founder/CEO did really take care of his employees: took the employees to ski resort and Christmas dinner every year. Benefits were excellence too, free healthcare, unlimited 401k matched, profit sharing every quarter, flexible working hours.

    When Infocus acquired Jupiter Systems, things went south. The only good thing left is flexible working hours.

    Cons

    This company fired people without hesitant, they cut benefits like they care about its employees. Low moral, high turnover rate as a result.

    Advice to Management

    like they care...

    "From amazing to toxic..."

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee in Hayward, CA
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee in Hayward, CA

    I worked at InFocus full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Jupiter Systems was a privately held company run by ethical founders who believed in employee welfare and profit sharing. The company used to take employees on ski vacations for free in the early years. Until the last year of acquisition by InFocus, employees had a phenomenal benefits package with 50% matching on 401K. That should tell you all about the integrity and compassion of the original leaders.

    Cons

    In late 2015, it was bought out by InFocus... and the situation is akin to what happened to Winterfell in "Game of Thrones" when the Boltons took over...

    Advice to Management

    Please...like they care!

    Pros

    My Schedule was flexible within reason and the hours did not falter. Other staff is readily available for assistance, you will never be high and dry.

    Cons

    The management is very afraid of clients and allows them to break policy with little or no resistance leaving the agents looking pretty bad. Upper management pays little attention to this department and employees are often forced into doing the work of their superiors, it is actually somewhat of a company policy. You will be told about amazing opportunities and promised quick advancement however that is a fallacy, if you are good at your job you will be ignored and overlooked for promotion.

    I worked at InFocus (More than a year)

    Pros

    The health care plan is decent. 401k with matching available for full-time employees. Paid-time off is given all at once at the beginning of the year. Start with 140 hours with option to carry over a maximum of 40 hours to the next year. More hours are given the longer you work at the company.

    Cons

    No career development or upper movement. Engineers are laid off without much hesitation. A lot of software development is done oversees. In the past year, most of the cuts have been in the engineering department. Sales and marketing staff have either grown or stayed on. No company culture nor values.

    Advice to Management

    Not much advice to give to management, most of what's left at the company are vice presidents (look at the InFocus website, there are 4+ VP's), directors, and managers. They should know what they are doing.

    Advice to everyone else: be careful. Company seems to be a sinking ship with not much software development in the pipelines.
