I worked at Bluetooth SIG full-time (Less than a year)

Pros

I honestly can't think of anything I really enjoyed about working there. They had a nice Christmas party i guess?

Cons

Their code base is written in an outdated version of TTCN and there is no documentation so it is very difficult to figure out how to use it. And most of the existing code is broken so there is not much to look at for examples either. Also, the IDE that you have to use there will give you a headache every day.
The managers want everything done in much too short of a time frame with hardly any people on the team.
Half the code is unable to be tested because they don't have the correct devices to do so.

Advice to Management

Either extend the time frame or hire more people. And invest in an upgrade to a language that is actually still used.

    Pros

    Small business feel with large opportunities for continued growth. Employees want to learn, are hungry for more, and want to make a global impact.

    Casual, yet professional atmosphere where your voice can be heard and your contributions can shine bright. Management is looking for individuals to take initiative as the organization has opportunities to become stronger.

    Location is amazing in the beautiful Pacific Northwest on Lake Washington.

    Cons

    Some employees like to live in the rumor mill. This is unfortunately where some of the negative reviews comes from. Stay away from negativity and be the positive influence you want in this environment.

    Advice to Management

    Advice to employees --> be the change you want, be the energy you want, take initiative to create the environment you want, and be kind. A team of self-aware and empathetic individuals can accomplish a lot when they have good intentions and believe that everyone else (management and members) has good intentions as well.

    Advice to management --> continue to be transparent, hire driven and motivated individuals with a high EQ, and then empower them to make an impact and influence the rest.
