    Pros

    Excellent engineering talent. Very good learning capability and exposure to various aspects of the engineering flow in the product cycle. A fantastic place to learn a lot.

    Cons

    A very indecisive management that does not have a vision for the company. A very bad work environment and an extremely low morale due to multiple layoffs and constant uncertainty and complete lack of job security.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please focus on the company and its products.

    Pros

    Engineers are not micromanaged and are given opportunity to learn new stuff and implement new stuff. Extremely talented VLSI Engineering team and product applications team. You can do things you way while making sure that you can produce the product in right amount of time.

    Cons

    This is company slowly becoming top heavy with very less number of engineers. It is very easy to loose the talent but very difficult to hire the people back.

    Pros

    Conexant provides a very relaxed atmosphere for its employees and gives them flexibility to create their own schedule. People are very friendly and helpful. In my numerous years at Conexant, I've never experienced any tension between people, nor have I seen any mistreatment of employees.

    Cons

    Not a lot of opportunities for advancement, or participation in seminars and training, or even trade shows.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hold frequent meetings with lower level employees and keep them informed about future product plans, as well as the status of current products in the market. Make information about company's products available for every employee who is interested to know.

    Pros

    Great fax technology, no need to learn anything new, if you are a mediocre engineer you'll be a superstar at Conexant.

    Cons

    Entire business is based on fax and other low-tech chips, no growth opportunities, gave up on reviews and raises years ago, they keep cutting benefits.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give up and put everyone out of their misery.
