    Some great people but poor direction from the top and the CFO is too involved with activities she does not understand.

    Neutral Outlook

    I have been working at Netlist full-time (More than 8 years)


    Good technology with some smart people with everyone trying their best with what they are given. An opportunity for everyone to make a positive impact. They are protecting their patents which have been trampled by others. This should pay dividends in the future and allow more growth.


    The top has unrealistic expectations from such a small team, thinking Netlist is much larger and can dictate what the industry will do. Focus and spending on legal fees limits the amount of resources going into supporting/growing the exisiting revenue streams of flash and DRAM.

    Advice to Management

    You have almost killed the company with your maniacal focus on HyperCloud at the expense of revenue generating lines. Get a better balance and get more resources to support short term revenue. You need more than sales to give to support the business. Hold QA/yourself accountable when shortcuts are taken that cause issues. When is the last time raises were given out and how do you think your employees feel about that?

    Difficult Interview


    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Netlist (Irvine, CA).


    Concise and to the point. Leadership wanted to see results in a month! When I mentioned that it was not realistic that person quickly ended my interview. Ironically, I ended up with a job offer. However, I was not able to implement my plan since they wanted immediate results, which were not possible.
