    I have been working at Super Micro Computer, Inc. (Supermicro) full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    I've been working for Super Micro for almost a year and I really enjoyed working here. The perks are great, including decent health insurance coverage, competitive salary, free breakfast everyday, discounted lunch, comfortable working environment, and free fruits every Wednesday! The working hours could be a bit long occasionally (it's the same for all tech companies in bay area).

    Cons

    No 401K matching and some senior staff members are a bit rude

    Advice to Management

    Keep on improving the company perks, it's moving toward the right direction!
