    I worked at HTC full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    The work is very fast moving and the colleagues are great. I haven't been in this dynamic and exciting of an environment... ever. The Seattle studio is a great open environment and it supports lots of active engagement.

    Cons

    Sometimes the fast pace overlooks a more thoughtful approach, and sometimes the C-Suite is heavy handed with their feedback to the designers. It'd be great if they were able to do their job with less influence from senior management.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Empower people to do their jobs and then let their work stick.

    I worked at HTC full-time

    Pros

    Work on cool and leading edge technology. HTC is constantly looking for a way to lead in the mobile industry and is open to new ideas. The people in Seattle are all open-minded and willing to listen to ideas and feedback.

    Cons

    Marketing is one of HTC's main pitfalls but at the same time HTC is tight on budget so it goes both ways. Although HTC is working on many interesting ideas, it needs to figure out what to really focus on and cut out the innovative but small impact projects.

    I worked at HTC full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    HTC is a small enough company to implement decisions quickly. The employees are empowered to take ownership for their part of the business and are allowed to try new and innovative programs.

    Cons

    Quick decisions didn't always lead to a big payoff. Through the hard times, there were usually concerns with downsizing. This fear was always looming over the company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The opportunity for training and internal growth was never a priority. It would be great if there was a strategy for this in the future.

    Stop being selfish. Measure peoples performance and don't let it be subjective.
