Engineering Intern (Former Employee) –  San Jose, CAJune 28, 2018
Very fast paced and stressful environment. Priorities were always changing and because of poor management a lot of work was not being completed on time. I learned that in testing and validation you need to more than 100% sure that your data is collected in the most perfect and precise way. You must be able to prove your case if something is not the way it is expected to be.

No clear lead
Facility Coordinator/PA to the CEO (Current Employee) –  San Jose, CAAugust 21, 2017
Employees are really nice and easy to work with. Vice President for the company has no respect for the works that are not family or that does not report directly to her. The job is very confusing no directions from management.

Fun place at first but really just a launching pad to better career opportunities
Engineer (Former Employee) –  Louisville, COMay 3, 2017
At first everything will seem great and fun. The people are great and often enjoyable to work with. Management and particularly ownership begins to show its true side after a short time working at the company. A lot of engineers start at the company and leave as soon as other opportunities become available. No idea whether this has to do with not enough challenge, pay or something else. But rarely do the engineers hired stay long.
