Not a bad to place to work

Product Manager (Current Employee)
Burbank, CA

ProsThe pay and benefits are great, people are generally nice and keep to themselves, and the work hours are sensible. If you're looking for a decent place to work, this is it.

ConsThe upper management, the CEO in particular, doesn't really understand technology, which locks them in a mindset of patent litigation. While patents have brought the company a lot of money, I don't think it's a sustainable means of survival.

Advice to Senior ManagementGet rid of Tom and bring in someone that understands technology.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
