Engineers, stay away from this company!
Software Developer (Former Employee), San Jose, CADecember 3, 2014
Pros: situated in santa teresa, chances are you have a reverse bay area commute of 20-30miles each way... there you have it.
Cons: understaffed, over promised. you are reminded on a daily basis that you are working for someone else's benefit.
1) Move the site. There is too much bad history there and there is nothing special about being there
2) Hire better management. Managers with people skills. Managers who like people and whom people like back.
3) Everyone seems to have a different incentive structure (play favorites). This produces a chasm within the staff.
4) Find a way to promote more people. Not just when someone leaves. Even at the detriment of current management.

A lot of these are easier said than done. however, other companies have some of these things. These might be the goals that truly turn everything around. Best of luck.

Pros: brekfast
Cons: no company culture
Everyone starts later and gets out late. People work while they are sick.

January 31, 2014

Thanks for the comments. Like a lot of tech companies we are somewhat flexible on our hours just as long as the job gets done. I would hope that employees would not come to work and get others sick but we can't force them into this decision. As far as the culture goes, I think we have been through a great many changes in the last year. Now as we become part of Toshiba our culture might change a little more.

Fast paced, productive and relaxed work environment.. for the most part.
Technical Support Specialist (Current Employee), San Jose, CAAugust 31, 2012
Pros: working in silicon valley in the hardware industry, learning more about technology and upcoming products.
Cons: frustrated customers with multiple failed products or issues, similar issues- no resolutions.
Providing support with phone calls,email and Trouble Ticketing systems regarding technical support for SSD's, PSU's memory modules and other types of flash memory. I've learned more about different types of flash memory, NAND flash and the internal components of solid state drives and power supplies. Hardest part of the job is experiencing new customer issues without a solution to provide for them immediately without following up with our testing department in regards to incompatibility issues with certain products. The most enjoyable part is resolving customer issues and helping them configure their system builds with our products.

NOT a good place to work, poor examples of leadership, run-down bldg
Engineering (Former Employee), San Jose, CAJuly 27, 2012
Pros: some nice people
Cons: most everything
Eng. manager there is not a good leader of people, no regard for the needs of people. He has favorites and acks like a child scorned to others. Won't look at, say hello, or smile at non-favorites. Will give extras, perks to favorites and look right past/ignore non-favorites. Won't give any kind of encouragement or constructive criticism, only scold, talk down to or ignore when something is not to his liking. He may know businees but not a clue about people. Compensation is very poor, compared to the rest of the engineering world. I only took the job at the time because I needed income right away. Glad to be out of there. The physical environment of not very good, the facility is run-down, not good for working effectively. People are stressed, chairs and otherr ergonomics are poor floors and bathroom are discusting. They won't spend money on making people comfortable or productive. CEO parks his Bentley and Lamborghini in the Disabled parking spots EVERY day. (Great leadership example). I could go on but you get the idea.
