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.

    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 Management

    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.
