Pros

It is small company. So the environment is very competitive. Engineers are one of the smartest engineers. Benefits given to engineer are sometimes are good. Every innovation is paid a lot for. Contributions are valued a lot. you can be a large fish in small pond very fast. Diverse group of people to work with.

Cons

Senior management lacks direction. In fact entire upper management team lacks direction.
Number of meetings are way high. Which makes is less productive space.
All Allhands meetings presentation, more-or-less look "identical"

Hiring HR Stinks. Upper management doesn't seem to realize that they miss a lot of good ppl who want to work with this company because of the hiring manager.

Advice to Management

They need to clean up themselves. a lot of junk folks. Remove some patent hungry folks.

    Pros

    The company has a family atmosphere. The compensation is way above average for the area. Good benefits, although those have been declining somewhat. The people I worked with were great - smart, not into politics, made it easy to go to work.

    Cons

    Too much uncertainty all the time. Too many layoffs. Management constantly changing strategy (like usual, even though they put in a new team). The lawyers rule everything. The place is a law firm. Lawyers looked down on engineering. If you're an engineer, don't bother applying unless you don't mind selling your soul. HR is the worst I've ever seen. Constant mistakes. Document EVERYTHING.

    Advice to Management

    Pick a path and stay on it.
