    Approves of CEO

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

    Pros

    Benefits are phenomenal, location is great. New product-centric business units run like up-beat startups with purpose. New CEO seems to have a good perspective on transitioning to a business services model.

    Cons

    Kind of a downer to work for a licensing company that makes money primarily by patent infringement lawsuits. Patent troll culture is kind of ingrained in the middle management. Cost-cutting inevitably creates a "get out while you can" environment until the transition to a new business model turns the corner.

    Advice to Management

    Flatten the structure by a level. Flush the management structure to bring in product-centric folks to match the new business model. Change the company name, not just the logo.


  2. "Great company, but a pressure cooker"

    Pros

    Interesting projects, strict hiring practices ensure that most people you work with are very competent and some of the best in their respective fields.

    Cons

    Company is headed in lots of random directions

    Advice to Management

    There should be less of you.
