Beware - a number of the positive reviews here are actually for other firms. This review is for Corsair. The memory and PC part company in Fremont.
Awful place to work. Upper management makes knee jerk reactions all of the time. One minute they are going one direction and the next the are doing the opposite. This creates a ton of internal pressure and needlessly high work loads. The frustration leads to high turnover.
Pay is well below average for bay area. A number of high profile people have quit or been fired recently. I had 4 bosses in 2 years. Crazy! They kept giving me extra work, but never any increase in pay. Not even a thank you!

Corsair has been moderately eeking out an existence for a while now. They operate in a niche and by in large they make quality products. But overall the company is just treading water, no real growth. They may gain in some areas, but they then promptly lose in others.
Inside the office the culture is really toxic. Very poor team environment. Upper management displays very poor leadership and incredibly they pit departments against each other. COO is untrustworthy, changes her mind every day of the week. Department heads frequently curse at lower employees while kissing butt to the COO.
Turnover was crazy high during my 3 years here. From low level to high level staff on up. Company has a habit of asking huge amounts of effort / sacrifice and then firing people when they get used up.
Marketing (Former Employee) – Fremont, CA – July 25, 2016
Long hours for very low pay. The company culture is very meeting heavy with very little time given to complete actual work. People have a cover yourself attitude here, lots of back stabbing, and the need to kiss up to the boss. Upper management is clueless and makes rapid decisions with frequent course changes. Very little care is give to taking in people's opinion.
Turnover has been crazy high the past two years. Lots of good people have either quit or been fired for silly reasons.
Shipping and Receiving Clerk (Former Employee) – Hayward, CA – September 5, 2013
Company has a nice family feel, which is great because you will never see your own. Shifts range from 10-12 hours a day (10 being the most common). Wages are kept low to keep OT payroll down. End of it all, you work hard to barely get by. Hectic work environment. Management lacks leadership and are often overwhelmed with other duties to provide necessary oversight of the day-to-day operations.
Company parties are nice, profit sharing bonus (when paid out) is a nice touch. Hour long lunches.
Lack of organization, long hours and weekends, no room for advancement, low wages
