    Former Employee - Sales Manager in Milpitas, CA

    I worked at Adaptec full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    great culture, good work life balance, company cares about its employees
    strong position in the market place as a / the leader in their segment
    great name and always opens doors to get meetings
    solid products with very good reputations

    Cons

    strategy confusion - systems? software? silicon? all? different strategy each quarter
    Could have been much bigger with some longer term strategic focus.
    activist investor didn't help any either.....

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    should have been the FC leader and appliance leader.... Should have kept the silicon
    tie in with real silicon lead now is good.
