Good people, but lack of respect from upper management
Principal Product Manager (Current Employee) –  Alameda, CADecember 11, 2017
Pros:
- Good people
- Smart Engineers

Cons:
- Executives have difficulty understanding what does it take to motivate the engineers in the Silicon valley
- Lost a lot of good engineers. Granted some of them were going to leave after the acquisition, but the ones that stayed... we didn't do a good job providing correct incentives to keep them. Hence we lost a lot of good talent, and we will continue to lose them if we don't do something about it
- Engineering driven culture still persists, but not as bad as before. Still needs work
- Work culture is not that collaborative, but with proper leadership it is not hard to get the teams to work together.

Advise to management:
- If your goal is to simply sell the company at the maximum profit within a year or two, then I think you are in the right track.
- But if it's about building & sustaining a great company that will last for a long time, then you need to invest in your people & make them feel like they have an ownership & responsibility to the product. Don't just force them to do things, since they are already overworked & over-allocated.
- Provide proper incentives. Compare with other Tech firms in Silicon Valley, and you will know what you are missing in terms of incentives & perks.
