Pros

Great co-workers
Fast-paced environment to keep you from getting bored
Great technology
What we do is helping change the world

Cons

The fast-paced growth over the last decade has caused many gaps in business processes. So, we are trying to build our infrastructure while using small scale processes.

Advice to Management

Look for and ask for the gaps and invest in ways to build the sustainable business practices.

    Pros

    - new projects left and right so there's always a lot to work on.
    - constantly working on new technologies, legacy products do no stick around for too long.
    - young and vibrant co-workers. lots of sports going on
    - decent cafeteria

    Cons

    - shifting focus can cause projects to start and end abruptly
    - the motto to "hire the best" can cause quite a competitive landscape that's difficult for junior positions to be adequately recognized.
    - portfolio expansion outpaces resourcing which leads to multi-tasking and project inefficiencies.

    Advice to Management

    Stick to a few core products and do them well.

    Pros

    great location in San Diego. Brand new campus with good facilities. Comfortable working hours and good company culture.

    Cons

    Not much vertical movement within the company. Often times people are brought in from the outside instead of promoting people from inside.
