      Great People, Great Vision

      Business Outlook

      Pros

      * It's nice to work for a company who's vision comes before business (don't get me wrong, they care about the business portion as well). * The Founder/CEO is very focused on the vision (long term) and overall benefit to society, and the COO is very focused on the numbers. It's a good balance. Both are very focused and know what they want. Both are smart in very different ways. * The current management is much more interested in employees' professional growth than previous management teams. * Not a lot of ego or management face-offs, as in years passed. A lot more cross-functional efforts and support.

      Cons

      * Morale is pretty good across most departments, but some departments are still recovering from the previous several years -- there had been a lot of change and turn-over, and we moved from Pasadena to Santa Monica. Because of that we lost a lot of people, but we're staffing up again. * Although the company is doing well right now and there are several opportunities for expansion, management still isn't certain of the roadmap for these.

      Work life balance is good. Not good paymaster. Need to step up brand advertising.

      Pros

      -Easy to maintain work life balance. -Some engineers are great. Potential for you to learn and apply new technologies. -Not many management layers. Can shine within company if you work hard. -Still a not a giant engineering team which is good in a way. -Get a chance to go to conferences.

      Cons

      -Pay is not good at Software Engineer level. -Facing stiff competition right now. -Recently the company moved to Santa Monica from Pasadena and many people had to leave as a result. But they have been very slow to get replacements despite knowing that they are facing stiff competition and need people for it. -Engineering management, sprint planning and resource allocation in some teams can be a lot better. Last minute deadline setting is not a good idea. -The work in engineering is not bad and there's lot of potential to do cool stuff that adds value to company but company has not been serious about Engineering Brand advertising efforts to attract people.

      Depending on the living cost in Santa Monica, I thought the salary is quite so so.

      Cons

      Aftwr the move to Santa Monica, the entire vibe changed. The drive plus little direction or way to move up made a lot of people look elsewhere
