Good technology and people, but bad management
Business Development Manager (Former Employee) –  San Diego, CANovember 30, 2012
Interesting technology and dedicated, talented engineers and program managers. However, the management is aloof, inconsistent, and top-heavy (seven or more VPs in a company of less than 200 people). The management is also factionalized and secretive, carrying out hire-and-fire policies particularly in the business development department. The company also has a very long sales cycle and a limited government market niche which is shrinking rather than growing, so this has no doubt contributed to the drama that keeps people on edge.
Pros
nice head office spaces, interesting technology, free snacks and sodas.
Cons
long hours, environment of fear, secretive management.

Excellant Place to Work.
Assembly Technician (Former Employee) –  Austin, TXApril 25, 2018
Workplace is mostly relaxed and informal, pressure to perform is only applied when deadlines are approaching. Time management is oriented toward results rather than time on the clock ( core hours must be worked but outside of that, employees are usually allowed to set their own work hours).
Pros
Free beverages and seasonal fruit
Cons
Contract Employees may be left out of company perks.
