Pros

Nice 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.

Cons

Poor 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 Management

Provide 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.

    Great place for a long-term steady place to work. Wind River is will to invest in its employees and has a history of treating them fairly.

    Pros

    Good work/life balance.
    Private offices.
    Many long time employees.
    Pleasant campus.
    Good flagship product.

    Cons

    No internal training.
    No support for career development.
    Company appears to be shrinking (frequent budget cuts and layoffs).
    Slow to adopt new practices.

    Advice to Management

    There's no real reason for this company to exist as a subsidiary. It may as well be a product division at the main offices in Silicon Valley.
