Great place to work

Director (Current Employee) Los Gatos, CA (US)

ProsExtremely open and honest culture to work in.
Management takes pride in culture and therefore is very candid about both the strategy of the company, and the challenges ahead of us.

Very flat organization.

ConsNo clear career path or career development provided. "High performance" culture means that we aim to hire very talented people (which is great), but we don't hestitate to let some one go if its not going to be a good fit over the long-run.

Advice to Senior ManagementContinue being open and candid about our strategic direction; it's extremely helpful in providing both context and unity of purpose.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
