    I worked at Polyera full-time

    Pros

    Innovative startup atmosphere, working on flexible display technology in a wearable band using Android OS. Great opportunities to learn and build groundbreaking products.

    Cons

    Board of directors wasn't able to manage finances properly and couldn't find investors. Ran the company out of money and announced the week before christmas that they would be putting everyone on unpaid leave.

    Advice to Management

    Give a heads up to your employees. Keep them in the loop. Don't hide the fact that the company is running out of money until you can no longer make payroll.
