Pros

Palm is a great company that lost its way. There are great people, great products and interesting and compelling projects.

Cons

I have had almost as many projects cancelled as shipped. It feels like the company is constantly in a state of being bought or sold. Office politics have been extreme at times, but not too bad currently.

Advice to Management

Beef up communications and provide a consistent direction. Get Palm past the current limbo state quickly.
