    So much potential squandered.

    I worked at Palm

    Pros

    Brand recognition; some really great, dedicated people working through some difficult situations (i.e. product and software quality was usually an issue which affected many of the customer facing departments)

    Cons

    Unfortunately management didn't have its attention on some of the key areas that were affecting Palm's reputation and product sales.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    My job was ending just as Rubinstein was coming in and while I was anxious to see how things panned out and if he would make a difference, it seems he couldn't. His product design and new software was obvously a breath of fresh air compared to what Palm had been producing but there seem to have been many of the same hardware/software quality problems that were there before 2007.

    I worked at Palm

    Pros

    Good in the beginning way before the acquisition from HP. Company was small enough where you were able to have various opportunities.

    Cons

    Company became way too political and it really depended on your boss. My boss had an inferiority complex and only looked out for her interest. It became more about how much you can kiss up to move forward rather than being a team and working for the company as a common goal.
