    I have been working at Wind River full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Very smart groups with global talent. Everyone is amicable and responsive. Has all the perks of a startup, but packaged in an archaic wrapper.

    Cons

    Facility could use some updating. But the location and outside grounds are top notch.

    Advice to Management

    Maybe some off site events or afternoon grass events to bring people out.
