    A company whose best days have passed. In a death spiral.

    I worked at ViXS full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Excellent technology to work on across the board. Can learn quite a bit if you are proactive.

    Cons

    -The management is seriously lacking: Little to no leadership or management ability, obvious creation of fiefdoms. Little to no accountability on their part as well
    -No concept of proper project/program management. Projects are always behind schedule and over budget
    -Unable to stand up or push back to clearly unreasonable customer demands, which led to scheduling delays and slips. This caused a reduction in customer confidence (and ultimately some dropped projects)
    -Massive lay offs are continuously being performed with no restructuring or sustenance program in place, leads to no confidence in the future of the company

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Diversify. The media SoC business is not one where money can be made.

    Pros

    Still growing. Employees hard-working and having change to learn more

    Cons

    Bosses don't care about details and internal relations of employees. Responsibilities are very confusing between each unit.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    making more and valid rules to ask every employee to follow.
