Pros

Small, friendly, people know the stuff well

Cons

Not enough brand name power compare to Nokia, Ecricsson.

Advice to Management

bring more interns and get them have a full view of the company instead of just the sector they are working on. Too specialized for a student.

    Pros

    - Stimulating atmosphere for the technically minded (engineers)
     - Get to interact and work with really smart people (company employs several ph.ds)
     - Very diverse employee set
     - Management very open to adopt innovations suggested by engineers

    Cons

    - Company has only single source of revenue (patent licensing)
        - should diverge into product development too
     - How about cabins for all employees instead of cubicles for just engineers

    Advice to Management

    - Open a company location in San Jose and San Diego, where there are lots of engineers
       (company locations are actually kind of "remote" from engineering talent)

    Pros

    It is a very challenging environment with a lot of very interesting projects. The technologies you work on are very cutting edge and there is a lot of exposure to patents and standards. You also have many opportunities to contribute to standards and write patents.

    Cons

    The company is very patent oriented and is still unexperienced with product development. Also, the product requirements vary rapidly and this creates more pressure on the employees.

    Advice to Management

    I would tell them to try to get more feedback from the employees. It seems that they could benefit from receiving comments directly from the people who work on standard/products, rather than receiving them from the (lower) management.
