Featured Review

Former Employee - Hardware Engineer

I worked at Cisco Systems full-time for more than a year

Pros

Exablaze was one of the most prominent startups in the modern data-center networking space. While it mainly focused on the ultra low latency applications, it produced several groundbreaking... innovations which are now commonly used. Engineering team was very compact and there has been tremendous opportunity to learn and grow.

Cons

Suboptimal business decisions and lack of proactive sales force led to many wasted opportunities.

Current Employee - Anonymous Employee

I have been working at Google full-time for more than 3 years

Pros

Great culture and great people! Would recommend it to anyone.

Cons

Horizontal structure might not be for everyone. Some people might need more structure.
