Pros

Laid back work environment and the flexibility to work on what you think is most important. Also, the pay is decent.

Cons

senior management does not have a clue on how to manage multiple projects at once or to be able to do work to plan for the near future. They only focus on what the immediate goal is and put all energy into that.

Advice to Management

have a plan for the future, instead of just a plan for the next 3 months. Keep the plan in mind while working on current project.

    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.
