Good Company, Nice people, Nice Cafe

Software Engineer Intern (Former Employee) Mountain View, CA (US)

ProsEthics driven Company
As an intern, I didn't find any politics, everybody was nice and helpful
Good pay and nice cafe

ConsNot everybody is smart (some people are just going along because they have been at the company long)
Older workforce in general makes it less attractive for new interns and new hires

Advice to Senior ManagementHire more young people, and make changes fast (older workforce although good, is still resistant to change...just my impression though)

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Pros: Compensation and benefits are pretty good. Good work/personal life balance. Not a hard or stressful place… Cons: Like many large and relatively old companies, this one has been thoroughly taken over by management that can't compete in the industry. There is a… Advice to Senior Management: Nothing less than a wholesale reformulation of the corporate culture… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend More
