Staff Software Engineer in Mountain View, CA
on May 4, 2022
Advise to management:Appreciate the initiative to become more software oriented but know it requires mindset change and current middle management is struck in old ways. A complete revamp maybe required not just enforcing intitiaves.- AI teams work culture is hectic and sporadic. Many people left recently and some leaving due to poor middle management.- Arbitratory deadlines are set by middle management and everyone is expected to just deliver. Leading to burn outs.- Teams are geographically located in US west coast, France, India and Armenia and therefore planning is hard and people will ping you later in the night.- Work life balance: You are expected to put in more than 40 hours per week. They are very strict about it.- Communication skills are quite different. People talk over each, interrupt each other and will not waste a moment to point out your mistakes. Quite rude sometimes.
Senior Test Engineer II in Somewhere, Canada

Loved the work. In beginning, manager provided support. However, it was clear that if my opinion was in conflict with manager's opinion then you were chastised. Instead of allowing open discussion, he would find ways to prove you wrong. It was a case of COPS and ROBBERS--which may work in some cases I guess.

For the most part I really loved my job there. My direct manager was great, I had a good team, but they are getting top-heavy with VPs and upper management and seemed to have a lot of lay-offs.
