    Although I would follow the General Manager anywhere, the CEO is mostly smoke and mirrors. Better leadership needed.

    I worked at HYPRES

    Pros

    Very liberal work schedule and academic freedom. The technology is very intellectually attractive. The company is small enough so employees get to interact with almost everybody. Pay is not too much lower than other companies offer. Opportunities for generating ones' own programs abound.

    Cons

    Some managers are more interested in securing their own position of power over employees and programs than in technical progress. Opportunities for promotion are very few. Managers are in general not well trained. Particular managers make arbitrary decisions, do not respect their employees' intellectual gifts. Consolidating power appears to be more important than moving the company to selling product. Too much money is spent on outside contractors who deliver very little output compared to the in-house technical staff. The company has been pursuing commercial business that is never going to result in a real product. The company has a reputation in the business community of not having viable products, but taking a posture as if it does. Despite this, some of the substantial work on digital receivers CAN become commercial successes if the R&D is completed and the company develops better commercialization skills.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The CEO should pay more attention and give more credence to the suggestions of his technical advisors. The CEO needs to better understand his weaknesses as well as his considerable strengths. The General Manager needs to more readily resolve conflicts, and to help give the
    company more direction. Patents that are trivial or have no technical leverage should never be filed. When a project leader asks for technical support, the request should be seriously considered in a timely manner.
