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.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The senior management makes a great deal of trying to communicate with the dispersed teams. However, sometimes it can come across as condescending, particularly all of the recent communications dealing with L-1 acquisition. Again and again it is repeating the same language to us "now is the time to focus," "This is a recognition of your efforts,", "Until done it is a business as usual", and repeating our "purpose" over and over has worn out and become meaningless when it appears the same way in coutnless meetings. With expectation of the reorganization and a real possibiltiy to go through layoffs again it does not make everyone feel better.

    Pros

    Excellent intellectual property team. Fantastic engineering team. Good people working at the company.

    Cons

    Huge gap between employees and CEO. CEO quite introverted with little willingness to finance productization of his technology. However he has created quite a lot of value for shareholders through various non product related business deals so can't complain too much.

    No opinion of CEO
