      Committed to Employees

      Pros

      Extremely professional response to Covid-19. Management truly cares about the employees and it shows. Maintained internship program during Covid-19 pandemic, whereas many similar companies eliminated the program. Company fosters a constantly learning mentality, and values education and continued learning.

      Cons

      Many people on my team worked extremely long hours, and were constantly fighting fires that would pop up. Somewhat stressful environment.

      Ok place to work

      Apr 2, 2019 - Product Engineer IV in Fremont, CA
      Recommend
      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      Compensation is good. Really smart and friendly co-workers. Good culture of safety. Good gender equality and maternal/paternal leave.

      Cons

      Work life balance is not great - long hours are the norm. Always a new crisis, some caused by bad upper management decisions. Constantly fighting for resources to do your job. Lots of repetitive tasks and making power points, not so much intellectual tasks worth hiring PhDs for. Information gets siloed - the company still has not adapted from its smaller company tribal knowledge know-and-ask-your-coworkers arrangement to its larger size.
