    I worked at Chelsio Communications as a contractor for less than a year

    Pros

    The thing I liked best was the autonomy to a certain extent. I answered to myself for my success and I was given the tools for the most part to meet the requirements of the job. I also got to work with very bright people. I got to work over-time.

    Cons

    My direction was not always clear. Things would change almost daily in terms of priority which made it hard to complete tasks in one day. (This was where the over-time was good) The CEO was not very communicative sometimes. After my boss quit, I did not get a meeting with him for several weeks. I had to re-do a lot of work for that reason.

    I worked at Chelsio Communications full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Good technology exposure to protocols related to Storage. Good company for entry level engineers to gain good understanding of the related technology.

    Cons

    Hardly any processes defined. Right from the requirements gathering through the design/implementation and through the quality testing phase, everything is done in a hap hazard way. Very crude way of implementing the projects. No proper road maps defined and no effort made to improve on the efficiency of the overall processes. Not the best place if you are in the senior engineering bracket coz there is absolutely no scope here for people/technical management skill-set growth.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You need to get some processes and also learn to delegate work efficiently across India and US centres. Company cannot grow if it still has a mindset of working out of a garage. Good for the initial days but doesn't apply when the company is already close to 10+ years!
