    Great staff, but Executive Management is disconnected

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
    San Diego, CA

    ProsGreat place to learn. A lot of autonomy and the ability to make your own decisions on how to get the job done.

    ConsTitle heavy company. A lot of Sr. mgr or Director titles without any direct reports.
    Executive management is disconnected from what is actually being done or not getting done.

    Advice to Senior ManagementStart talking with everyone in the company and pay attention to what they are telling you.

    Overall my time at PacketVideo was very positive

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
    San Diego, CA

    ProsPacketVideo 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.

    ConsThe 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 Senior ManagementSpend more time interacting with the employees

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
