Employees are great, met several longterm friends and business connections

Marketing (Former Employee)
Alameda, CA

ProsNice campus, you actually get your own office, some have views. Employees are well versed in their fields and contribute to the overall stability of the company. Great for self starters.

ConsPoor senior management, little or no direction for advancement, very few women executives. Prefer to restructure departments over working with the talent they have.

Advice to Senior ManagementProvide opportunities for personal growth to avoid costly restructures. Think beyond immediate financial gain of outsourcing overseas, and focus more on the longterm quality of industry solutions and product life cycles.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    Disorganized, lots of internal competition among silos

    Senior Member of Technical Staff (Former Employee)

    I worked at Wind River full-time for more than 3 years


    Pros: Nice dog-friendly campus, private offices, autonomy. Breadth of industries served allows for tremendous on-the-job education… Cons: Volatile sales organization. Cut-throat politics and internal competition for deals and assignments (and some who steal credit for your work). Compensation is not as competitive… Advice to Senior Management: Overlay sales teams with vertical experts, recognize your product managers are not vertical experts (stop flying them everywhere to meet with unqualified customers), and stop… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend More
