    If you do good work here you are rewarded - if you want to see how companies in the valley function this is a great place to be. Some of the smartest hard working people are here and you feel part of a strong brand. The products work, and the customer roster is strong.


    The hours will be long and not all managers are created equally. Some are opportunists, some actually care. Snacks and lunches are good but that's table stakes at most companies in the valley. As the company's grown that has meant more policies and procedures - some make sense, others feel like needless bureaucracy.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Compensation needs to be competitive or your best will leave. Mean what you say about company values. No more "behinds in seats" mentality just to make things look busy - trust your staff, treat people like adults, manage by exception.

    Interview Details

    Organized and straight to the point, they won't BS you. Had a phone screen that went well. Brought onsite a week later; interviewing with four separate people, all giving feedback afterwards. Called with job offer before even making it home. Nothing too tricky, they will know right away if you're a good fit.
