    Pros

    Working on innovative mobile platform (WebOS)
    Learn a lot about embedded software development in general (cross toolchain, Open Embedded
    based build system, log analysis tools).

    Cons

    Management's inability to monetize on the promising technology. There are a lot of material on
    the web about the Palm saga in the last 3 years of it's existence).

    Advice to Management

    They are all gone now.

  2. Laid back good work environment with clueless senior management

    Pros

    Laid back work environment and the flexibility to work on what you think is most important. Also, the pay is decent.

    Cons

    senior management does not have a clue on how to manage multiple projects at once or to be able to do work to plan for the near future. They only focus on what the immediate goal is and put all energy into that.

    Advice to Management

    have a plan for the future, instead of just a plan for the next 3 months. Keep the plan in mind while working on current project.
