Consthe product is out dated with slim gross margin. used to have good product line, but fail to innovate to catch the mobile wave.

What a Joke

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
Burlington, MA

I have been working at Zoran full-time for more than 10 years

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

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

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

Good place to work

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
Burlington, MA

I have been working at Zoran

ProsFree 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.

ConsZoran 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 Senior ManagementInvest 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.

Its ok to work there as engineer, but management is very biased.

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

I have been working at Zoran

ProsGood team members along with good compensation.

ConsUpper 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 Senior ManagementGive some clear visibility to engineers and be less biased.
