    Former Employee - Senior Principal Engineer in Sunnyvale, CA

    I worked at Rambus full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Overall, good to great coworkers
    Some interesting areas of R&D to develop
    A shift away from the patent troll mentality (finally)
    Good facilities
    Great benefits and low cost for them
    Good salaries

    Cons

    No true corporate strategy ("increasing shareholder value" is NOT a corporate strategy)
    Only focus is on cost cutting; minimal on development of new markets
    Little value in the stock options
    Current CEO is tactical but no strategic vision; tactical is needed but where is company going without a real strategy?
    Numerous layoffs in last two years limiting moving company ahead
    Poor to average management in middle layers (some areas have a strong good old boy network)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Develop a real technology vision for the future
    Make a strategy and go after it

    Current Employee - SMTS II - Logic Verification Engineering in Bangalore (India)

    I have been working at Rambus full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Great learning curve. good HR policies. Good career opportunities. Good remuneration package.

    Cons

    Work environment in Bangalore is not good. Lot of blame game and attitude problems among people. Good people have left the company. Work life imbalance. Projects are done in very hap-hazzard manner. The timelines are unrealistic. Bangalore site location is not convenient place for commute from many places in city.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Seems to be lot of attitude issues with people. Project timelines are unrealistic. Lot of blame game. This is specific to Bangalore site only.

    I have been working at Rambus full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    no real projects, no real pressure.
    good working environment.
    good engineers (but many left the company already).

    Cons

    no real projects.
    no clear direction.
    top heavy structure.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    We all thought you would take last re-org to do something good to the company. Look what you did? Good people left one by one. You need to find why.

    Doesn't Recommend
    Negative Outlook
    Disapproves of CEO
