Thread regarding Wind River Systems Inc. layoffs

Two more negative reviews on

First Review

"Necessary technology; great customers; faltering direction"

Former Employee - Product Management

Doesn't Recommend

Negative Outlook

No opinion of CEO

I worked at Wind River full-time


Great technology that will always be needed.

Customers build amazing products using Wind River technology that help make people's lives better, safer, and more secure.


The not-so-recent acquisition by its current parent has resulted in unsettled direction.

Advice to Management

Current priorities and direction are not leveraging Wind River's traditional core competencies and core technologies.

Second Review:

"No bueno! No fun anymore!"

Former Employee - Account Executive in Alameda, CA

Doesn't Recommend

Neutral Outlook

Disapproves of CEO

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


Wind River used to be a great company to work for, not anymore. I would not recommend working here. Unless, you want to work for Intel or get laid off.

I loved working for Wind River! Loved my coworkers, loved the flexibility and loved going to work everyday. After 5 years of loving my job, Intel decided to absorb Wind River, making everyone's lives miserable. Layoffs, coworkers tattling on one another, etc... is why I left


Layoffs, low pay and more hours than you would want to work. I do not recommend working here. It isn't fun anymore.

Advice to Management

Your employees are miserable! They're just sitting around scared and waiting for an intel package.

I think the first review was reposted here a month ago

I know how the second reviewer feels. I'm looking at moving on for many of the same reasons they listed.

Second review hits close to home for me. I'm experiencing many of the same issues and feelings.

Especially the infighting and tattling.

Just don't feel comfortable here anymore. I wish everyone here the best, but I am looking to move on.
