    Current Employee - Director in Hong Kong

    Pros

    Large corporation with many possibilities in terms of career advancement. You will have the structure of a billion dollar corporation. You can tap into many channels to seek help when need to.

    Cons

    Although being in a large corporation is a pro factor, but it also hinders the typical agility of a small design consultancy. The typical process from a small firm with speed doesn't apply here.

    I have been working at Radius Innovation & Development full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    I stay because of personal reasons and interest in product development but it is hard to be positive with so much change. It is the norm so I need to suck it up and realize this is part of the culture.

    Cons

    I've experienced so much change that it hurts, like hurts to do the job. Since I've been with the company we have been reorg-ed from division to division. Nypro, engineering services, marketing, "sales-enablement", now it seems back to Nypro. We've had about six different leaders. You can imagine it makes for an unstable and unpredictable workplace.

    I have been working at Radius Innovation & Development full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    The Silicon Valley team has been carefully crafted and has been very fun to work with. We are always working on challenging projects and luckily we have very talented designers and engineers on staff to produce incredible results for our clients. The workload can be pretty demanding but it doesn't feel as daunting knowing that your team will be willing to help and stay late if you need to get something completed. The culture is lively and comical (in a good way), and the managing directors always make sure their employees are treated to luncheons, social outings & dinners, and feel appreciated. While the Jabil offices may sometime feel like quiet study rooms, we prefer to keep things alive and fresh in our studios. I came on board because of the projects I would be working on, but I'm staying because of the people I get to work with.

    Cons

    Due to the Jabil structuring, there seems to be too many hoops to jump through for fulfilling simple requests. This isn't a negative on Radius but its connection with Jabil. There has been a big push on allowing all of the studios to operate with less restriction from Jabil but that has not come to fruition.

    I worked at Radius Innovation & Development for more than a year

    Pros

    Great people, super intelligent and professional Unbelievable resources - Hands on prototyping facilities with the most cutting-edge equipment available anywhere Upward mobility - Radius is part of a family of companies where there is unlimited potential for professional growth

    Cons

    Radius is not able to keep up with the wages of Silicon Valley's biggest tech giants - Google, Apple, FB, etc. Maybe this isn't a fair comparison, but it means that their top talent is susceptible to recruitment offers.

    I have been working at Radius Innovation & Development full-time

    Pros

    Inspiring place where anything is possible. I’ve grown a lot since starting here. Unlike any design or engineering consultancy, the access to resources, knowledge, specialists, tools, everything is possible here. It’s an exciting time in the valley and in technology to have the opportunity to be working with the worlds leading technology companies. Salary is competitive and great benefit package better then any other consultancy I’ve known.

    Cons

    When the office in blue sky opened there were some managment issues that were not working, and since then have been worked out like any Office when it starts out, and now Radius is on a tremendous path forward towards growth.

    I have been working at Radius Innovation & Development part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    I have had the opportunity to work with the Strategy team at Radius, San Jose Office on several engagements so far and I absolutely love the environment, the strategic nature of the work and the flexibility offered at this place. Employees are highly collaborative and the design work is truly inspirational. Highly Recommend working with this team.

    Cons

    None that I can think of

    I have been working at Radius Innovation & Development full-time

    Pros

    Have you ever worked on a far out conceptual kitchen gadget? Or an sporty health device that beeps when you really need it to? How about designing a plastic package for a really really big global brand? This...yes, all of this amazing.

    Cons

    Big boss shifts have created sides. My friends who are motivated by marketing and my friends who are motivated by their accreditation. Both can be right but are not juntos. Recruiters seem to ring sensing change upcoming (again).

    I have been working at Radius Innovation & Development full-time

    Pros

    The focus on integrating deeply with manufacturing. The on- field-team. The product development industry is inspirational. There are many pros yet challenges. The old leadership was harsh yet respected. The new leadership is compassionate yet not respected. The old understood the wider market (the whole enchilada). The new understands the Jabil requirements (the pressure cooker). Both are important.

    Cons

    Counter logically, our relevancy is reducing. We are trying diligently. We're good people, but we have a hard time with talent and projects in the open market. We are now smaller due to cuts and it is harder on the projects. Do your homework, ask former employees and customers about their experience.
