Company Culture

The San Ramon office is extremely unprofessional. One of the executives would spend a great deal of time walking around and bragging to his captive audience how wealthy he was. Another executive would pressure certain female employees to do personal projects for him. The list goes on and on. The company speaks of "team work" but I found no evidence of this at the San Ramon office.

Internal Communication

Very poor training. Basically hire you and expect you to hit the ground running. You are told when you make a mistake but rarely receive positive feedback. if you try to become educated on the procedural process, you are scolded for asking too many questions.

Gender Equality

Women can excel at this company, however, you need to understand how to work with the "Boys Club" mentality that exists at this office. I found that there were some very smart women at this office but I also saw the men treat them inappropriately. For example, women were asked to do personal errands for the men that were far outside the scope of normal job duties.

Overall compensation for your work

I felt the salary was very fair for my position.

Office / Work Environment

The office is very nice and I found it comfortable as far as ventilation, lighting and temperature control.

Work-Life Balance

I will say that I did not feel the pressure to work after hours and I did feel that there was understanding when it came to needing time to deal with family situations.

Job Security

I felt secure but when the company hit tough times, you couldn't help but feel nervous about your job security.

Challenging Work

The work can be as challenging as you want it to be. If you wish to work on more challenging accounts, the opportunity is there.

Inclusive / Diverse

If it means they can make more money, they will embrace diversity.
