    I have been working at Rambus full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Best boss and best co-workers of my career. I'm constantly encouraged and supported to try new things and look at the old things in new ways. The benefits are amazing and you don't have to give up having a life to get them (like you do at some of those "best places to work" kind of companies). I'm very proud of Rambus' contribution to the communities we work in. Even during tight times, we did not reduce the (substantial) dollar amount of our donations. On top of that, employees are encouraged to volunteer at corporate and non-corporate-sponsored organizations.

    Cons

    The company has been through some challenges in the past but I really believe we're primed for a great future.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep on instilling (installing?) the values in all areas.

    I worked at Rambus

    Pros

    Great place for one's own development. Very great atmosphere at work and everyone is approachable. High scope to learn many new things .

    Cons

    Small company so work load is more.
    Few technologies are new and takes time to learn and implement on project.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    They should work on the way projects and teams are made. Some have very high qualified people whereas some had mid level people

    I worked at Rambus

    Pros

    Small company size, so no side/useless/small projects. There are regular meetings of the engineering teams, and it is easy to stay informed about what others are doing and where to go to get help.

    Cons

    Due to the small size of the company, there isn't much additional time/money allotted for side/pet projects. This isn't so bad though, just means your work at Rambus is your first priority.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I don't really have any additional words of advice. My management was the best I've ever had. Very open, always helpful, and yet never intrusive. I only hope all my managers are similar.
