    Unfocused and undisciplined management. Too distributed and too driven by decisions by consensus. Heart in the right place, but fails to reach its potential due to too many self-inflicted wounds.

    Pros

    PacketVideo has great benefits, a great work culture, and works with very interesting technologies. If you are proactive and want to take on more responsibility, you can definitely do so.

    Cons

    The senior management could be more open with employees about things happening at PacketVideo. The products are very interesting, but management should focus more on monetizing them.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Spend more time interacting with the employees
