Random Employee (Former Employee) –  Mountain View, CA20 September 2016
Company ran out of money. Couldn't raise more and got bought out by the Chinese for a song. 90% of the employees scattered to the winds. Are the lights still on?

Master Scheduler/Planner (Current Employee) –  Mountain View, CA3 December 2015
I found that my immediate manager was supportive and allowed for me to develop my own methods for accomplishing that tasks assigned. The co-workers were also supportive and team minded in their approaches to various projects.

Great startup company to work for
Senior Document Specialist/Audit Team Leader (Current Employee) –  Mountain View, CA24 November 2015
Management of the company is excellent. CEO meets with the company nearly every week at all-hands meetings; he is personable, approachable, and cares about all his employees. My direct manager encourages his employees in professional development and places strong emphasis on cross-training in all functions so that anyone in our department can temporarily step up if someone is out. Input is welcomed and we are encouraged to develop and implement our own ideas.

Kitchen is stocked weekly with fresh food, and drink service comes in twice a week.

Hiring was on a boom the last few years, so cubicle space in the building was hard to come by (I had to move four times in five years).
Pros
Stocked kitchen, flexible time, excellent management
Cons
Hours can sometimes be unpredictable. Space shortage in building.
