    I have been working at Wind River full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Flexible schedule, empowers employees to take action, encourages growth and learning, generous compensation and benefits. Excellent work/life balance - great vacation package and reasonable work hours. Rewards staff who work hard and are self-motivated. Colleagues are excellent - intelligent and great to work with.

    Cons

    Company feels stagnant, and North America offices/staff continue to shrink. Layoffs occur annually, and staff who leave voluntarily are usually not replaced. Staff are challenged to stay motivated in this environment. I'm hopeful that recent changes in upper management will improve these issues.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take a step back and look at the big picture, rather than focusing on quarterly numbers. Short-term risks/changes may be required for long term success.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Wind River in April 2014.

    Interview Details

    Saw a job posting with Wind River that matched my skills and submitted my resume through WR’s web page. Heard from a human resources staffing coordinator within a few days and got an interview scheduled within a few days. Interview was with supervisors and staff, and in one visit. The interview gave me a clear picture of what the job entailed and the personalities of the team I would be working with. Within a few days I was offered the position and within a few days after that, I received an offer letter. Pretty fast - "within a few days" for each step in the interviewing process.
