Pros

Interesting concept, but odd execution. They may send you to places for support of the clients, but it will be badly timed and for unknown duration. It's a very diverse workforce, so that's interesting...getting to know people from other cultures and lands.

Cons

lots of unscheduled work, missed deadlines, etc. They are very dependent on clients purchasing their solutions, but these solutions are older and retrofitted in many cases. Clients are choosing larger national companies, rather than sticking with these guys. They have taken senior managers and made them individual contributors, because of the bosses inability to understand their markets and customers.

Here's a good example of the management's problems. A few years ago, the company came to within a few weeks of having their stock symbol delisted by their exchange.

    Pros

    The best reason to work for Digimarc is the technology the company is centered around is very good. The IP is solid and the work is challenging.

    Cons

    The main downside to working at Digimarc is that there is too much cronyism in upper management. They come in and make bad decisions based on incomplete information and then expect top performance inspite of the bad decisions.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I would suggest that all members of management Sr. Director and about actually sit down and read the company values and then actually practice them and take them to heart.

    Pros

    Digimarc has a culture of treating employees with respect and trusting their judgement. Mid level managers are very respective to work life balance of all employees. Generally only the best are hired after a reasonably grueling interview process. While there is a cubicle environment the overall atmosphere is well done with high quality cubicle hardware and large spaces.

    Cons

    The benefits are decent but not great. There is almost no 401K matching and bonuses are very spotty. Digimarc almost never gives out significant performance perks like spot bonuses. There is often a big company culture even though at its core Digimarc is still a relatively small company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Find new ways to leverage the incredible IP the company has. Let the thought of selling the watermarking business to another large company fall by the wayside.
