    The environment is great and they did what they could.

    It's still a company that has to report to a Board.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Do what you gotta do to keep people employed and keep inventing. Stay outta courts.

    Pros

    Executive leadership is committed to turning the company into a products and services-oriented company. And the depth of talent at the company is considerable

    Cons

    Like any company, it is siloed, and it's not entirely clear that leadership knows how to pull people together to build a truly collaborative working environment.

    I worked at Rambus as an intern

    Pros

    Top talent, hard working and nice people to work with. Got to work on a variety of projects. Many exciting technologies in the works,

    Cons

    Can't think of any downsides as far as I experienced them as an intern. For regular employees I have heard that politics and favoritism plays a role in advancement.

    Pros

    Rambus is a great place to work, with strong HR Policies, liberal perks and exceptionally good quality work environment and benefits unheard of in many big companies too!

    Cons

    While Rambus Inc is an embodiment of high level of quality the Indian arm is a big cry from it. Lots of Favoritism & Politics makes it a difficult place to work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Rather then criticizing (in the name of process improvement) the Support Functions, better to concentrate on Core Engg functions & plan for Revenue for Co..
