I worked at Wave Systems

Pros

Decent product, good engineers, some strong channel relationships.

Cons

Leaders are technologists, not business movers. Poor sales management in the US, much better in EU. No incentives for exceeding performance.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Need better product innovation. Treat your emplyees fairly. Changing of the guard in sales is a must.

Doesn't Recommend
No opinion of CEO

    management lacks quality cohesiveness. company is reactive instead of proactive. Overextend Sales and did not generate new sales which lead to company wide instability and downsizing.

    No opportunities for professional growth.

    I have been working at Wave Systems

    Pros

    Jury is out on whether or not the new management and remaining employees can succeed . They viability of the products in a mobile and cloud centric world is unknown.

    Cons

    Former CEO was an egomaniac that completely ignored markets , customer wishes , and products that meet both. Engineering team that built what they want , when they want , following the CEO lead.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make products so easy to use that your Mom or Grandma could install and use them

    Doesn't Recommend
    Negative Outlook
    Disapproves of CEO
