    Pros

    Pay, benefits, flexibility are amazing. The people are pretty great as well. Small but mighty teams in the USA with solid support from HQ in Taiwan.

    Cons

    Poor leadership, financial insecure company. There has been laying after layoff the last few years. This company can't keep up with the big boys in the smartphone manufacturing space.

    Good experience working on full-scale, real-world projects. Contains the entire Android OS stack so odds are you will find some role that interests you.

    I worked at HTC full-time

    Pros

    Flexible work environment but that also means lack of process and oversight.

    Cons

    HTC is no longer a player in the smartphone market and the bet on VR seems to be in need of a few more years of maturity which HTC does not have. AR seems to have the momentum now, evidenced by Facebook's downward price pressure on Oculus

    Advice to Management

    Cut the smartphone business and sell the VR business
