    Negative Outlook

    I worked at SeaMicro full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    lunch was provided, and ample free desk space available throughout the building

    Cons

    went out of business. The ample desk space had more to do with headcount than furniture design.

    Advice to Management

    obtain profitability or bail and sell off IP, earlier

    I have been working at SeaMicro full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    OK base salary
    Free lunch & snack
    No/minimum retribution for failure to deliver

    Cons

    The founder is gone. Is there anyone who still has faith of this product?
    Minimum bonus/RSU

    Advice to Management

    Is there any fundamental issue from letting independent server reviewers review our products?

    Neutral Outlook

    I worked at SeaMicro full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Product of data center in a box was revolutionary. Team was experienced and was able to get several new versions released quickly.

    Cons

    Like most startups only the founders, investors and a few VPs get the tremendous financial rewards. Everybody else nets about the same in total benefits when compared to a larger company.

    Advice to Management

    Let the employees also get a "reasonable reward"

    Negative Outlook

    I have been working at SeaMicro full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The relationship between teams and employees is generally good.
    The CEO is quite open.
    Very good base salary, The total compensation may not be up to Google's level. But it's much higher than the typical tech companies in the bay area.
    9 free meals each week and free drink/snack
    Normally, no overtime is required.

    Cons

    Not sure why the product is not selling. Worse, it doesn't seem that anyone in the company can figure it out.
    Because of the bad sale number, the bonus is minimum, if there is anything at all.
    Some teams at the critical path are consistently under-staffed while some other teams are bloated and let people sit idle for weeks/months.
