    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Palm in February 2008.

    Very easy-going. Upfront about the problems that the company has (which are many). There are MANY Junior folks working at Palm and it show sin the quality of the work unfortunately. The more senior guys have their exclusive "boys club" which leads to a really terrible culture.

    Don't by shy to make your requests heard. They will often bend to them if they are reasonable
