Small company working to get into a large market
Business Development (Former Employee) –  Bellevue, WADecember 10, 2018
Bsquare is an innovative company that has developed solid product and services but has struggled to gain over-the-top acceptance in the market. The workplace culture is good. The management supports the team. I think they would be more successful as a privately-held company v. publicly-held.
Pros
solid team and technology
Cons
publicly held

Productive Company with Friendly Staff
Finance Intern (Former Employee) –  Bellevue, WAOctober 18, 2018
Because I was an intern I did not get involved in a lot of aspects of the company. I enjoyed working there and thought about working there after some more schooling, but it didn't work out.

Bsquare is a great location, fun staff who spend time together outside of work, and has fun events for their staff.
Pros
Great Location, Fun atmosphere, Nice Perks

Mismanagement

Brought to market new product/service and management made growth decisions that outpaced revenue and new client acquisition. Core talent attrition was a consistent problem during my tenure.

Best company I ever worked for
Software Engineer (Former Employee) –  Bellevue, WAJanuary 25, 2018
Worked here twice as a contractor, and really enjoyed it. Great co-workers, staff, etc. and often very transparent with employees. Too bad they rarely have openings, I'd be happy to work here full time.

Management was mostly absent
Principle Software Engineer (Former Employee) –  Bellevue, WANovember 24, 2017
Not recommended. Largely an aggregator of open source systems with limited engineering staff. Company has grand designs but is not supporting the engineering effort to achieve them. I had no support from my supervisor.

Innovative Product Offering
Senior Marketing Manager (Current Employee) –  Bellevue, WAJuly 24, 2017
Bsquare has an innovative spirit and is doing cool things in the IoT space. They are also sort of old school and frown upon working from home which is a problem if you live in Seattle.
Pros
Work life balance, innovative product
Cons
Rigid work from home policy. Limited internal promotions, would rather hire outside talent.
