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

    I have been working at Wave Systems full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Flexible work hours, inclined to adopt new Microsoft technologies, many good working engineers to develop into lasting working relationships.

    Cons

    Communication problems exists within group in same geographical location, let a lone different locations. Managers do not share the same goals, are not working for the good of the company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Upper management should talk to engineers more often. Get briefed from engineers as well, not just direct reporting managers.

    I worked at Wave Systems full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Good benefits plan.
    Lots of people come to work late and leave early.
    Some really solid, seasoned software engineers.

    Cons

    Non-competitive compensation with regards to perks, stock options, salary, get-togethers 401k matching... pretty much everything.
    Lots of people come to work late and leave early.
    Too many layoffs and reorganizations; morale is extremely low. The company is bleeding employees on a regular basis.

    Doesn't Recommend
    Negative Outlook
    Disapproves of CEO
