      AVOID this company

      Mar 11, 2021 - Engineer in Milpitas, CA
      Recommend
      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      Nothing that I can think of.

      Cons

      Conclusion: AVOID at all costs. Things you need to know: 1. Just a windows company, not a tech company. 2. Salary not competitive. If you are in the bay area you have many better alternatives. 3. Benefits not good. Rarely send out any gifts to employees, and if they do, they just give you some cheap stuff. 4. Old school management style, not many young generation within the company. 5. The truth behind a lot of so-called "urgent" requests is that management suddenly realizes "oh we need this". 6. Sales-driven culture. Hard to measure your impact if sales can't close deals. 7. No standard practices in a lot of areas. Let me remind you, it's not a startup but a company that's been there for more than 10 years. 8. No lunch provided in the office. No snacks. No free drinks for you to grab and go, just some cheap coffee or hot chocolate from the coffee machine. I wish Glassdoor would allow people to give ZERO star in the review because that's what I would give to this company.

      Great Company, many opportunities

      Apr 15, 2021 - Human Resources in San Jose, CA
      Recommend
      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      Rapid growth in a niche market. Lots of opportunity for career growth, leadership is transparent and does a great job of communication. Monthly all hands meeting with CEO, for example.

      Cons

      With the fast growth comes quick change. Not really a con, but life in a late stage start up that is gaining momentum.

      Dysfunctional Infighting among Executives

      Mar 24, 2021 - Anonymous Employee in Milpitas, CA
      Recommend
      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      There are many nice, smart people at View; technology is very cool and should become standard (hopefully someday); vision for the future of company is ambitious

      Cons

      Unfortunately all those Pros don't end up mattering much since there is such heavy dysfunction at VP and Exec levels. The culture of ruthlessness is set at the CEO level and permeates throughout. Lots of fighting for territory among VP's which really just creates a zero sum game where everyone at View loses. Unclear priorities and siloed teams ends up meaning that not a whole lot gets accomplished. It's a real shame since there are so many great people and the base product is really great.

      Extremely exciting startup with huge potential

      Jul 12, 2020 - Management in Olive Branch, MS
      Recommend
      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      This is working for a true Silicon Valley startup, so it requires dedication to the mission of shifting the paradigm of construction to one that focuses completely on the customer experience with that building. Think about the movie Blade Runner and the concept that buildings themselves become intelligent and integrated with the daily human experience, and that is what View is creating. This is not a workplace for people who want to come in a sit around on long term projects working 35hrs a week. It's a a startup with the same financial goals as any startup which means many of us work 50-60 hours every week and when not working we are often thinking about ways we can contribute more to hitting those financial goals. Outstanding executive leadership from the CEO, CFO, COO is also a big positive as they keep the big picture at the top of our minds every day. and keeping us informed on what the current situation is for the company. The scientists that created our product over the last decade have built a technology that is amazing to see in action... the most exciting place I have ever worked!

      Cons

      As I said above, this is not the place to come chill out. This is extremely fast paced and requires excellence in your role and innovative thinking sometimes well outside of your role. If you can't do this, management quickly addresses that issue and there is no time for on the job training so you can be out the door very quickly if you can not consistently produce at the A player level.

      Toxic leadership. Micro-management Masters

      Mar 1, 2021 - Marketing 
      Recommend
      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      Product was cool for what it was.

      Cons

      From the CEO down it is nothing but micro-managed nit-picky chaos. Nothing can get done without dozens of review cycles.
