Not a good company if you're an American.

I worked at Kudelski full-time (more than an year)

Pros

Innovative industries are it's focus. Some brilliant people. A good percentage of their products are industry leading. A long storied history of technical innovation.

Cons

Unable to grasp longer term trends. Does not invest in it's various divisions. Does not invest in it's people. It was very quick to embrace USA employment advantages (i.e. no 'European' benefits for the Americans). They are no longer truly innovative. They have a very serious case of innovators dilemma (unable to destroy their existing/dying business to replace it with what's competitors are coming at them with from the outside). A dying company.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Take more chances. Invest more in your future and less in maintaining just the present.

    Pros

    operate in leading edge field, fighting against the most innovative companies like Apple, Google, Netflix and Amazon.
    long term focus, capable of seeding money in long term investments

    Cons

    family business where loyalty is #1 reason for promotion. Laziness and bad decision (or worse, no decision at all) shall be punished and fresh blood bring in to fuel innovation.
    Sr. management is scared to kill the cow.. very little industry vision.
    typical use case of Innovator Dilemma.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Sr. management accountability!

    Pros

    A great place for leaning about settop box technology end to end. Very competitive environment and gives a good feel of small company working on real customer projects.

    Cons

    HR policies are less flexible and hard to adapt if you are from an bigger companies which are much more flexible. For example: Foreign travel policy, leave management.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management should encourage more team work than individual performance. No recognition for helping other teams. Also management should focus on quality and achieve high CMM level certification.
