Pros

Exciting technology and application areas spanning many industry sectors and use cases. Global customer base and exposure to next gen products and services. Strong on IP and close to the touch screen revolution happening everywhere.

Cons

Very HQ centric. Small organization but feels like blue chip in processes and culture. Still early days for touch applications in terms of consumer use cases

Advice to Management

Invest more in developer ecosystems. Work on creating more of an open, collaborative startup culture across the organization, with wider participation in innovation

    I have been working at Immersion Corporation full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Company is solid and has a great business model. It's been around forever, but most people have never heard of it because it doesn't "make" products, but licenses their software/hardware to major companies. Ever heard of XBox/Playstation? Immersion haptics are in there. Cadillac? Yeah there too. Mobile phones? Yup in there too. They have money in the bank, so you feel secure. Also, there is a great work/life balance. No one wants you to get burned out. Oh, and they are big on patents. They set aside time for company wide "Innovation Days" where you can work in teams to come up with patent ideas so you could actually become an inventor.

    Cons

    Commute can be bad unless you live close or take the train to the Great America, Santa Clara station, or light rail to N. First Street at Tasman Station, or have an electric car to get into the carpool lanes.

    Advice to Management

    Get more help staffing. We have so much opportunity and so many cool projects to work on.
