    Pros

    Only pro was living close to work, only 10 min commute.

    Cons

    Working at corsair I wore many hats but was never acknowledged for all my hard work. The one thing I dislike about this place is how the CEO never acknowledged his employees if he didn't know them by name he has his favorites and that's the sales team. The COO basically runs the company and the employees are paid way below average. I would say stay away from this place. No employee recognition or fun activities for employees, executives don't think it's worth the money.

    Advice to Management

    Fight hard for your hardworking employees, they deserve better pay.

    Pros

    Profit sharing but not guaranteed every month, literally the only pro of working here.

    Cons

    toxic environment--extremely poor company culture, working hard doesn't reward you, they make a lot of very very questionable personnel changes, underpay everyone and stack responsibilities without compensating.

    Advice to Management

    please treat your employees better

    Pros

    Excellent benefits, perks like time off, shutdown and holiday policies, solid co-workers that are great, and good company values.

    Cons

    More training would be great, more work-life balance would be nice, like telecommuting; more recognition and rewards.

    Advice to Management

    Transparency in all dealings with the employees and the company; get around and meet with managers and employees more often on a one to one basis; ask for feedback and then make the genuine changes and effort whenever and wherever possible.

    Pros

    Company has great potential due to extremelly passionate and dedicated employees. It is trying to reinvent itself and grow into a more "established" company but at what cost...

    Cons

    The cost of the change is on the employees... Long working hours, frequent strategy/course changes, a distant upper management that struggles to relate with employees, all this leading to an inability to execute in a timely fashion on product launches - which makes it even harder on us, the employees.

    Advice to Management

    There is no such thing as perfection. Squeezing every last drop of energy out of the employees to try to reach this goal will only exhaust the team.

    Pros

    The people at Corsair have been wonderful to work with. Everyone is pretty laid back but also has a sense of urgency when it comes down to business. I am really enjoying my time here, the CEO seems very friendly and has a great sense of humor during the company meetings. Also, I LOVE the fact that we have quarterly functional meetings with the CEO and a small group of employees were we are free to ask any questions to the CEO. Management team at Corsair want to see you grow as an individual and take on more responsibility as your time progresses at Corsair.

    Cons

    Only cons is the pay can be a little higher to meet market but overall pretty decent.

    Pros

    I have been here for about 2 weeks now and everyone seems very pleasant and friendly to work with. The pay is OK too. Corsair has great products, which is why I wanted to work for them in the first place. People here are available to answer questions if you have any, which helps a lot. From my experience so far, Corsair seems to really care about employees and the people they hire. Nice place to work at. Freeway access is great too.

    Cons

    The only Con that I can think of right now is people having no consideration when walking up and down the stairs, which creates a lot noise.
