    Still...it's a pretty good place to work!

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
    Santa Clara, CA

    ProsManagement is understanding about work-life balance and flexible about taking time off to address personal business. It is not a work-aholic company. People typically work reasonable hours. It's rare to find people working on nights or weekends.

    ConsJob security fears are still present after the layoff of 2008. People tend to be overly protective of their job duties and somewhat territorial.

    Advice to Senior ManagementMore resources put on Plus Products....they are the future of this company.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    CEL, a place to retire...

    Business Development Manager (Current Employee)
    Santa Clara, CA

    ProsEasy job, relaxed work environment, lot's of freedom, nice coworkers...
    Definitely the place to retire or raise a family...
    If you are aggressive, motivated and want to make change happen, CEL is not the place for you.

    ConsThe company does not decides of its destiny, but rather NEC Electronics does. The Japanese partner is disconnected from American business realities, whether it be best business practices, product roadmaps or customer needs. If it does not exist in Japan, it does not exist, period!

    CEL

    Advice to Senior ManagementUnderstand what CEL does best and leverage this activity only.
    CEL never was and never will be a competent development/engineering center.
    Flatten the management team, focus on efficiency, execute!

    Once a great company has dissolved into a puddle mediocrity.

    Sales (Former Employee)

    ProsSafe working environment.
    Great hours.
    Time to work out.

    ConsAnalysis Paralysis
    Going nowhere for both good reasons and endless excuses.

    Advice to Senior ManagementAdmit failure, move on, bring in a fixer.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
