Awesome all around
Media Personalization Intern (Former Employee), Emeryville, CAJune 12, 2014
Pros: team bonding, smart people
Cons: not great growth/development
Great, creativity encouraging work environment. Leadership is helpful and informative, but can be very busy so not always accessible or available.

I learned how to be creative, working closely with coworkers for a project.
A typical day at work? Everyday is different! And that's why this company is always full of new energy.

Good place for database people
Software Engineer (Former Employee), Emeryville, CASeptember 25, 2011
Pros: made friends with good people
Cons: traditional management style, product driven (vs. technology), no modern development practices, developers are really devops
As an applications and systems developer, Gracenote was a very poor fit for me. They lured me with the prospect of working on migrating their system from Oracle to Hadoop, but it never materialized. Instead, I was working on essentially patches and minor changes to their existing, labyrinthine system. There was no hope of ever getting to do what I was – more... hired for, much less what I am good at doing. It was a waste of my skill set and experience. – less

engineering (Current Employee)September 21, 2011
Great work environment, flexible work hours and locations. 3 weeks vacations + 4th of July week.

The company is changing tech stack from Oracle/Java to Microsoft SQL Server/C# and leading to big changes in the company.
