How is the work and office life at A9, in the Palo Alto office? What work do interns there generally get?
Does it have a startup culture or is it similar to Amazon? Does it have a similar frugal nature as Amazon? Is the pay scale different from Amazon?
Do you have a cafeteria for (paid) lunches? Gym? Any other benefits?
No tc and 0 yoe. Sorry.
1. Some buildings suck. The 2 Lytton buildings near the Caltrain are the best. The other 2 suck.
2. Too much growth. In 2 years the team+org quadrupled.
3. Good wlb...but you don't get paid extra for oncall like G or FB. Sometimes work can be a pain.
4. Compensation model is not good long term.
We have good things like our own "cafeteria" with snacks but you need to buy your own lunch. There are monthly social events. There's parking that can be expensed and downtown PA is prime area.
