    I worked at FastVDO

    Pros

    Relaxed work environment Lots of opportunity to experiment and work on different projects Interesting research oriented projects in video compression and image processing

    Cons

    Lack of direction for the company Lack of transparency about the company's revenue stream. Very little career coaching. Difficult to grow in the organization.

    Advice to Management

    Its time to move from a research group mentality and transition into a product development company. Also, invest in some serious product development and marketing talent.
