    I worked at Immersion Corporation

    Pros

    The products are very cool and fun to work on, the big picture objective of improving medical training is one that makes it easier to come to work on Mondays. Because it's a small company, there are lots of opportunities to work on things outside your official job title. The overall compensation package is pretty good for a small company. Many of the individual contributors and middle management are smart, dedicated employees who really care about the projects and people working on them.

    Cons

    Senior management is new and treats the employees like commodities. As of early 2009 they are laying off lots of people, including many valuable contributors. The long term planning seems non-existent.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Do a better job training / mentoring your existing employees prior to terminating them. You have shed a lot of great talent since Clent came on board. Spend more time on long range planning and communicating those plans to the employees. Start making more decisions based on the long range goals of the company rather than quarter to quarter.

    I worked at Immersion Corporation

    Pros

    Exciting technology and application areas spanning many industry sectors and use cases. Global customer base and exposure to next gen products and services. Strong on IP and close to the touch screen revolution happening everywhere.

    Cons

    Very HQ centric. Small organization but feels like blue chip in processes and culture. Still early days for touch applications in terms of consumer use cases

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Invest more in developer ecosystems. Work on creating more of an open, collaborative startup culture across the organization, with wider participation in innovation
