      Highly Political and Non-Inclusive

      1 Dec 2022 - Manager, TPM in Sunnyvale, CA
      Recommend
      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      Work life balance is ok and benefits are very good (excluding pay)

      Cons

      Pay is lower than every other top tech company. The company likes to act as if it is still in a start-up mode like when it was founded but this is so far from the truth. The company is very slow and beuracratic and promotes the wrong values...company favors political sensitivity and how much butt kissing you can do over what results you actually deliver to your organization. Also, company is trying to be inclusive but is one of the most unifncluive companies I have ever seen let along worked at.
