    The environment was great. There was a lot of talent that was very open and worked very closely together. It wasn't a huge company so you still had the opportunity to be involved in many aspects of the development life-cycle. Wonderful growth opportunity. You always had access to the founding members, and they were all wonderful leaders.


    Lack of focus. PV was cutting edge in the beginning of mobile media, but it seems that it never pushed ahead enough to keep that lead. After time, the mobile media market was flooded with a large number of players. At that point PV was juggling a lot of random projects that never really took off.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on a strength and keep it strong.

    Average Interview


    The process took a week. I interviewed at PacketVideo (San Diego, CA).


    Standard interviews first over the phone with the hiring manager, the onsite. Asked a number of good questions on background and experience working with customers in challenging situations. Some of the interview questions were repeated from one person to the next, making it easier to get feedback and fine tune my answers towards the end of the interviews.
