    Former Employee - Senior Software Engineer in Santa Clara, CA

    I worked at Zoran full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great people that I really enjoyed working with. Everyone was kind and considerate to one another.

    Cons

    Limited software vision. As a hardware company, more emphasis should be placed upon the software and the tool used. This makes a huge impact upon on the experience.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire more software visionaries.

    Pros

    Some of the people. Didn't have to work very hard

    Cons

    You were scrutinized by the people you knew or were close to. HR was a complete Joke, there was NO HUMAN in Human Resources. You were either liked or disliked. Very caddy and unprofessional. Everyone knew your business whether you wanted them to or not. Office affairs were not uncommon.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay attention to your employees. Get rid of the dead weight vs praising them just vecause you like them personally

    Pros

    Free drinks everyday. Free donuts week, Free birthday cake every month.
    Easy to commute, many smart and hardworking people.
    Flexible hours. Some come to work at 6am and some work until 10pm.

    Cons

    Zoran was not in the right decision in the past few years. It is now part of CSR.
    It is a little stressful near product release.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Invest in the right area and make the company profitable.
    After acquisition by CSR, DTV and some lost-making business were cut.
    This is painful but necessary.

    Pros

    Good team members along with good compensation.

    Cons

    Upper management is very biased towards Isreal site. No consideration for good work, but only beating for bad work. Marketing has no vision of product cycle and unrealistic schedule.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give some clear visibility to engineers and be less biased.

    Pros

    a company with experienced professionals, a newcomer can learn a lot, the copmpany has a number of interesting directions in development, great location.

    Cons

    there is pressure sometimes, not clear what is the bigger vision of the company, management desicions are sometimes vague and unclear until the last moment. in my opinion the copmany need to open-up to new markets and products, the digital cameras and dvd are dying and without any new ideas/products the company will follow.
