    Pros

    Redondo Beach . WOW.
    8 hours of work. No work pressure.
    relax environment
    less than 25 people work there. Friendly environment

    Cons

    Company is going down.
    below par salary.
    No Bonus.
    Management doesn't have any plan. Clueless.
    lazy people.
    Sub standard company benefits.
    If you want to live retired life, go and join this company.
    Company is breathing on past legacy. There is no long term planning. Financial crisis are because of the management who are not willing to take risk and playing safe game on old customers.

    Advice to Management

    Learn Management.

    I worked at SKM Systems Analysis as an intern

    Pros

    Laid back 9 am to 5 pm work style.
    Good location, very near to Redondo Beach Pier
    I suppose its good for EE people

    Cons

    Old technology. Still working with VB and VSTS 6.
    Managers don't have much idea what new hires are supposed to do.
    Bad business outlook.

    Advice to Management

    You don't need fulltime CS employees. You need a one time contractor. That ways, you can save some money.

    Pros

    easy work, little or no deadlines, friendly people, you get your own space, but monitor is continuously tracked.

    Cons

    absolutely zero innovation. They are neither willing, nor they have the skill to adapt to changing software industry. As mentioned in the other review, they are breathing on their past legacy.
    Development team is very small and they don't follow any good coding practices. Plus, the technologies used are so old that you will find yourself back in ie6 days.
    Management is not clear of the tasks they need to assign you, so they keep giving random tasks which you dont even have any experience with.

    Advice to Management

    You are not existing in the same world as the industry. Try to look outside your company and see the good things people do to improve their work environment.
