    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.
