    Pros

    People are great. I thought working with Europeans would be somehow difficult, but it has been fine.

    Cons

    Just that the company has had such a hard time getting into the market. Many layoffs.

    Pros

    Tons of potential and some great people

    Cons

    Poor management at the beginning that was impossible to recover from.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    At your next company pick a strategy and stick to it. Hold people accountable for missing deadlines (one part was 2 years late).

    Seemed like a promising merger but they shut down the RTP office

    Pros

    Interesting products and seemingly cutting edge technology. However I wonder how they will do now that Apple is dominating and the OS market is narrow.

    Cons

    I was looking forward to working in a globally competitive company but they closed the offices in RTP just after the merger happened. Personally I think it was part of the plan all along.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I'm sure they had good reasons for making the decisions they did and in fairness they gave a lot of notice.
