      Former Employee, more than 1 year

      A fundamentally flawed start-up that sailed far beyond its innocent days, operating similar to a $500B corporation

      Pros

      - Attractive location. Fantastic restaurants and small park within walking distance - Flexible schedule - Above average vacation time - Good health and dental benefits - Lots of training provided for professional development

      Cons

      - Unclear mission statement - Old-timers have absolutely no accountability for any past missteps/failures - Some under qualified and inexperienced engineering managers that lack the basic credentials with long history of misguided projects and failures - Excessive turnover rate in upper management - Both top and middle management spend majority time driving and fighting politics as oppose to understanding and solving the actual problem - Low employee morale, engineering staff have little to no drive for "innovation" or delivering a stellar product
