I have been working at Pelican Imaging full-time (more than 5 years)

Pros

interesting technology, high market potential if they can figure out how to work through all the technical challenges before running out of cash.

Cons

long R&D cycle, small company that wants so much to be successful, but lacks the experience and leadership to get there.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

whats the point of giving advice, if they already have all the answers.

    Pros

    Overall I've enjoyed working at Pelican and I'm glad I joined. The technology has the potential to be revolutionary in the imaging field and it seems like the company has a bright future, as startups go. The engineering team is very capable and technically astute. Great place to be an engineer/developer.
    Free lunches, snacks, and bagels are a plus and it's cool that the teams gather at lunchtime and hang out. Fun, friendly group of people.

    Cons

    Product roadmap could be better defined but I think that's true everywhere. Customer requirements sometimes dictate crazy schedules.
    Limited opportunity for career development and training.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Spend time with ALL of the staff, not just the leaders, and listen. Lighten up the corporate culture. Have fun!

    I have been working at Pelican Imaging full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Cool technology and opportunity for cutting edge research
    Great technical team and hard working

    Cons

    7 year old startup. Marketing vision videos that are technically infeasible to sell non-existent technology

    Attrition is bad. Past year over 18 people have left company including 4 Directors, 2 VPs. Last months 3 Directors and VP left. Company is 35 people and don't know who is next. Rumors of layoffs

    All hands meetings no one asks questions. Emperor and his clothes

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management: Listen and be open. Do not discount those that disagree with your ivory tower. Stop deflecting blame on the customer
