    Pros

    It's a very good place to work, People in here are very friendly and cooperative.
    Being a first intern for packet video at Charlotte was very special, I've got a very good platform to learn and explore. I learned a lot from being novice in Python and Javascript to a Mid level developer.

    Cons

    It is not exactly a negative point for the company, But I would have been very happy, If my internship got converted to full-time employment.

    Advice to Management

    Keep going at the same pace

    Pros

    Best people you will ever work with.

    Cons

    Since the mobile market has changed to more apps based PacketVideo has become much less relevant and direction for the company since NTT Docomo bought it has been questionable.

    Advice to Management

    Find a strong direction for this subsidiary.

    Pros

    Great culture. Caring management. Intelligent people. Always working on interesting technology. Overall, working for PacketVideo has been a positive experience.

    Cons

    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.
