I worked at Immersion Corporation

Pros

The work seemed challenging, when I interviewed, but management is completely incompetent and did not know how to run a technology business. The space they are in is very interesting, but
they are unable to grow the business.

Cons

No career growth, poor pay and no recognition.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

You should start filling with technically competent people instead of yes men like CTO.

    Pros

    They have some of the coolest technology and demo kits in the industry.

    Cons

    Although the company is small, it has the feeling of a 'big' company culture. The new CEO is a first time CEO, who obviously is going through his learning curve now.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Open up the company culture. Maximize information sharing among departments.

    It's a mixed bag at Immersion Medical

    I worked at Immersion Corporation

    Pros

    The products are very cool and fun to work on, the big picture objective of improving medical training is one that makes it easier to come to work on Mondays. Because it's a small company, there are lots of opportunities to work on things outside your official job title. The overall compensation package is pretty good for a small company. Many of the individual contributors and middle management are smart, dedicated employees who really care about the projects and people working on them.

    Cons

    Senior management is new and treats the employees like commodities. As of early 2009 they are laying off lots of people, including many valuable contributors. The long term planning seems non-existent.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Do a better job training / mentoring your existing employees prior to terminating them. You have shed a lot of great talent since Clent came on board. Spend more time on long range planning and communicating those plans to the employees. Start making more decisions based on the long range goals of the company rather than quarter to quarter.
