    Pros

    Very nice work environment. Middle-management does their very best to keep their teams happy and productive. Interesting technology that feels unique and presents a variety of good challenges. Strong emphasis on work-life balance.

    Cons

    Very little career growth opportunity. Compensation did not keep pace with market values. No cohesive approach to marketing/selling product meant multiple changes in priorities and direction.

    Pros

    Excellent intellectual property team. Fantastic engineering team. Good people working at the company.

    Cons

    Huge gap between employees and CEO. CEO quite introverted with little willingness to finance productization of his technology. However he has created quite a lot of value for shareholders through various non product related business deals so can't complain too much.

  3. Digimarc, Loyalty is a one way street from you to the company.

    Pros

    The best reason to work for Digimarc is the technology the company is centered around is very good. The IP is solid and the work is challenging.

    Cons

    The main downside to working at Digimarc is that there is too much cronyism in upper management. They come in and make bad decisions based on incomplete information and then expect top performance inspite of the bad decisions.

    Advice to Management

    I would suggest that all members of management Sr. Director and about actually sit down and read the company values and then actually practice them and take them to heart.

    Cons

    There's no adequate carreer growth opportunities

    Advice to Management

    The senior management makes a great deal of trying to communicate with the dispersed teams. However, sometimes it can come across as condescending, particularly all of the recent communications dealing with L-1 acquisition. Again and again it is repeating the same language to us "now is the time to focus," "This is a recognition of your efforts,", "Until done it is a business as usual", and repeating our "purpose" over and over has worn out and become meaningless when it appears the same way in coutnless meetings. With expectation of the reorganization and a real possibiltiy to go through layoffs again it does not make everyone feel better.
