Only nice if you're a guest
Hostess (Former Employee) –  Jekyll Island, GAOctober 11, 2017
Everyone is either complaining or moving around the island because they don't get along with someone. The new restaurant/hotel isn't all that great. The view is pretty but the rooms are pretty basic for the price. The construction was still going when we opened. The head chef at corsair allows chemicals to be sprayed while food is being prepped and served, and he doesn't wash his hands frequently. The staff doesn't even get a discount on the food, the managers and head chef's don't care about anyone but themselves. I'd only work there for the connections through guests or if you're desperate.

Fun, Productive pace to work
Business Editor (Former Employee) –  Pensacola, FLMay 16, 2017
This is a newspaper, so it will be fast paced, but it is rewarding and will help build up your resume. The people are great to work with and you can almost feel a sense of family.
Pros
Works around school schedule
Cons
is not a permanent job

Great Culture, Great Products
Director Sales (Former Employee) –  Fremont, CAJanuary 17, 2017
Corsair has a great corporate culture. The Christmas parties are epic.
They also take care to keep developing some of the best PC peripherals and components on the market. Had a great time at Corsair and it was largely because fun people worked there.

Awful Place to Work
Marcom (Former Employee) –  Fremont, CAAugust 1, 2016
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!
Pros
Annual party
Cons
High turnover, low pay, bad culture

Low pay, long hours, high turnover
Marcom (Former Employee) –  San Jose, CAJuly 26, 2016
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.
Pros
Good products
Cons
high turnover, long hours

Worst Place to Work in Bay Area
Marketing (Former Employee) –  Fremont, CAJuly 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.
Pros
Cool products
Cons
long hours, low pay, high turnover

English Micro Management

Controller and CFO are from UK. Position is micro management to the max. Finance employees are treated like trash. If they don't like you, you are out of the door very quickly.

Work hard for little pay
Shipping and Receiving Clerk (Former Employee) –  Hayward, CASeptember 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.
Pros
Company parties are nice, profit sharing bonus (when paid out) is a nice touch. Hour long lunches.
Cons
Lack of organization, long hours and weekends, no room for advancement, low wages
