    Pros

    Benefits like any other company, Bagel Wednesday, Good health Insurance, Good 401k plan

    Cons

    Pay is definitely low compared to other companies in bay area.

    Senior Management in the group lacks the basic fundamental skills of appreciating employees at the group level. They treat employees as slaves and take things way too personally. Seriously you have got to be kidding.

    You would typically have a workload of 2 people in this group.

    Advice to Management

    Senior Managements who do not know how to appreciate employee contribution should be let go.
