    Former Employee - Engineering Manager in Mountain View, CA

    I worked at Alvarion

    Pros

    Technology is great. Learning Wireless Technology such as WiMAX is cool. Over all, employee is nice to each other. The company is heading to the right path. This company will survive for a long time since they manage the company's spending and control product's cost very well.

    Cons

    They are kind of cheap as employee benifit goes. But not the worst. This company is traded on Nasdaq but it runs like a foreign company. Upper managers will suddenly talk in the meeting to each other using their native language. This makes other us employee feel uncomfortable sometime.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be fair to treat employee from different race.

    Pros

    Vey nice facilities. A lot of space and very convenient building and office services. Salary is relatively high.

    Cons

    Unstable, I have worked there for 5 months, In that time my direct manager was replaced 4 times and my team members were change 3 times. The job title also changed 3 times and all in only 5 months. After that and at the 4th manager change and team change I decided to leave (and the team just earned another manager change....)

    Pros

    Great people, fun environment, interesting and promising technology

    Cons

    Got side tracked from their main mission, and then didn't keep up with the US carriers' move to LTE.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    How could a company with $170 million in cash, no debt, and 850+ employees around the world when I started in late 2007, go belly-up and shut down virtually all US operations and lay-off 350-400 employees by early 2011 - it boggles the mind.
