I worked at Wind River full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

Nice campus, you actually get your own office, some have views. Employees are well versed in their fields and contribute to the overall stability of the company. Great for self starters.

Cons

Poor senior management, little or no direction for advancement, very few women executives. Prefer to restructure departments over working with the talent they have.

Advice to Management

Provide opportunities for personal growth to avoid costly restructures. Think beyond immediate financial gain of outsourcing overseas, and focus more on the longterm quality of industry solutions and product life cycles.

    I have been working at Wind River full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Wind River is by far the most professionally run company in the embedded software industry. There are lots of resources available to get the job done. Internal processes make sense. Everyone is pulling in the same direction for success.

    Cons

    Some of the newer products are a bit immature but this is to be expected when attempting to push into new technologies. Some of the internal IT systems are unwieldy and outdated, but they still get the job done once you learn how to use them.

    Advice to Management

    Need to reconnect with the core of the embedded market. Not all customers are Fortune 500 companies, so small and medium businesses should not be ignored.
