Wind River is a pleasant environment to turn jobs into careers

Senior Member of Technical Staff (Current Employee)
Alameda, CA

ProsWind River is the industry leader for device software optimization, a form of embedded software solution that provides the foundation for other companies to build their system upon. Their technology is central to an increasing trend of systems and devices that can communicate information over various types of networks. It is rewarding to work with the technology, stay on top of what is upcoming from their customers, while having a work life that is balanced, flexible, and one that gives opportunity to grow. The transparency and easy access to senior management is reassuring that your concerns are always heard and getting addressed. Their benefit program is excellent.

ConsOne issue that most will have to adapt to is the spread of personnel over the wide geographical presence of the company. Yes, most companies are spread out but at Wind River, people in the same team can be from a few timezones and countries. While it is nice to learn about different cultures and practices, it does require some extra effort, such as on communication skills, and participating in meetings at odd hours.

Advice to Senior ManagementKeep up the good work, especially on encouraging criticism and rewarding talents.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
