    Pros

    Great people to work with!

    Cons

    Maybe too many irons in the fire, too many groups developing code for multiple phone carriers!

    Advice to Management

    If there was some way to streamline the processes so multiple groups aren't inventing the same things at the same time...more knowledge sharing to save time and duplication of effort!

    Pros

    Cutting edge environment. Great facilities.The benefit package including health, 401k, and bonus are good. There are a number of opportunities to work on cross functional teams and internal opportunities for employment moves.

    Cons

    There has been so many layoffs, so many changes in management and ownership in the company the last few years that there is a feeling of instability. It is unclear what the new owners, Lenovo, will do in the long term.

    Pros

    Great innovation, products you can really stand behind and want to use yourself, setting new standards for the industry.

    Cons

    Company still loses money quarterly so they are extremely cautious how the money is spent. Little investment in new opportunities and their personnel.

    Advice to Management

    Look more for your own people, they are the ones going the extra mile for this company

    Pros

    Interesting work in high tech electronics. Diverse workforce with good team culture. It will be interesting to see how the company develops with recent change of ownership.

    Cons

    There is no job security. Layoffs on a regular basis. Always looking over your shoulder for the axe to fall in your direction.

    Advice to Management

    Don't think you can downsize your way to success.
