    QNX's great technology is hamstrung by poor marketing and management execution

    Engineer (Current Employee)
    Delaware, OH

    ProsGreat technology, excellent engineering talent, brilliant vision
    A chance to make a real difference in the direction of a terrific product
    Open software implementation that gives anyone the chance to use a world-class embedded product

    ConsMiserable marketing - no understanding of the embedded market or what customers really want
    Inability to hit a deadline
    Decisions made by uniformed people in positions of authority

    Advice to Senior ManagementListen to customers, stop chasing the latest 'shiny' thing, focus like you say we should
    Make a product that installs well, is easy to use, works first time and runs flawlessly.
