    Pros

    SMSC had a good and diverse portfolio of products. When one product line was down, others were usually doing well and able to make up the difference. SMSC bought a few good and unique technologies but could never quite take advantage. Best thing about SMSC? It beats what came after it.

    Cons

    SMSC never acquired enough critical mass to get to the next corporate level. Over the last few years, it became obvious that upper management was more interested in making the company look good on paper rather than actually growing the business. When they finally found a buyer not sophisticated enough to tell the difference, upper management sold out the rest of us and made off with a small fortune.

    Advice to Management

    Too late now, but you need to stop overfilling the ranks of upper management with your buddies from previous jobs.

    Pros

    The work place is nice and the people are easy to get along with. The jobs are relatively stable. Some divisions have projected long-term growth.

    Cons

    The management did't hold the long-term view of the company. What they did was pumping up the stock price by buying small companies in the last few years. However, they rarely intended to integrate them.
    SMSC now is part of Microchip.
