Terrible products, Terrible company

Senior Software Engineer (Current Employee) San Diego, CA (US)

ProsSome of the people are nice. Not too much overtime. Decent bonuses.

ConsNo career advancement or salary raises unless you are part of the in-crowd. Very cliquey, high school environment. Stale, irrelevant products. Low salaries. Absolutely no future to move up or work on anything different/more challenging.

Advice to Senior ManagementWhy do you think so many employees are jumping ship get it together, people. Management is constantly changing and company policies seem to change depending on who is in charge that week.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
