    Pros

    free dinners after 19:30; bagels on Friday mornings.

    Cons

    Company is still being run as a startup, not as a going concern with 9-digit annual sales, so everything is done 'in arrears' as a result of customer demand; little forward planning

    Pros

    Dedicated employees, flexible work hours, good location with easy access from both the North and South bay.

    Cons

    Management is truly lacking and it's not being addressed. You've got "old school" folks in running entire departments like HR. Not willing to raise the bar and thus the key employees who could push the company forward are leaving or have already left.

    Identity theft scam that impacted entire company due to negligent Finance temp sending out 2015 W2s.

    Advice to Management

    If management is not delivering, it's time to push them out. You lost a lot of key employees while I was there. Employees leave because of managers. No one is looking into the why or addressing the black sheep in the room.
