    Inefficient work processes

    (Former Employee)

    ProsCostCo snacks, kayaks, bikes, location

    ConsIn spite of agile environment, little development gets done compared to what is needed.

    Advice to Senior ManagementRemove the "Bluetooth Staff" parking spaces. Devote more energy to influencing members and less time to marketing the products. Manufacturers are doing that well enough.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Awesome technology to be in, highly dysfunctional management.

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) Kirkland, WA

    ProsIn the next 5 years Bluetooth will play a major role in the IoT, so this is a very exciting time to be working in and around Bluetooth.

    ConsAs a non-profit the Bluetooth SIG reports to a board of directors, which is made up of mostly low to mid level managers. The committees are run by the same people that have been around for almost 10 years, so it's very political. Many of those people are keeping the technology from evolving at the pace of the market, but they can't be fired.

    Advice to Senior ManagementBe bold in your actions. The ED needs to get out of the weeds and be a leader.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Look elsewhere

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsWaterfront office; lots of snacks, and birthday parties. Other than that, I'm at a loss. Workspace was quiet.

    ConsThe company was very volatile, and there was very little direction from the C-level execs and above. It was a mystery as to what some of them did. Compensation, and benefits were also below the area norm.

    Advice to Senior ManagementFigure out what the SIG's objectives are, and plan projects accordingly. It's really that simple; when I worked there, I was never sure what value the SIG was adding to the Bluetooth ecosystem.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Low pay, long hours, terrible code base

    Software Development Engineer (Former Employee) Kirkland, WA

    ProsI honestly can't think of anything I really enjoyed about working there. They had a nice Christmas party i guess?

    ConsTheir code base is written in an outdated version of TTCN and there is no documentation so it is very difficult to figure out how to use it. And most of the existing code is broken so there is not much to look at for examples either. Also, the IDE that you have to use there will give you a headache every day.
    The managers want everything done in much too short of a time frame with hardly any people on the team.
    Half the code is unable to be tested because they don't have the correct devices to do so.

    Advice to Senior ManagementEither extend the time frame or hire more people. And invest in an upgrade to a language that is actually still used.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
