    I worked at Wireless Generation, Inc. full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Excellent colleagues -- Intelligent, fun, interesting, and good people. Very healthy and positive culture. The engineering talent level was also extraordinary, and that was maintained largely even through rapid growth because the hiring process was very effective and selective.

    Cons

    Fairly reactive and chaotic approach to what projects we took on, which was accentuated by a growing emphasis during my time there on doing consulting / custom solutions work instead of product work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Now that the company has been purchased by News Corp., I've heard a lot of the old culture is disappearing. This is a big mistake, although with nearly all the technical and social linchpins of the engineering team gone, it may not matter anymore.
