    Pros

    technical strength in analog high speed serial link design

    Cons

    -If the company is sold below ~300M, preferred stock holders get all the money, i.e. common stock holders get nothing. They won't warn you this when you joined.
    -cubicle has very low wall without privacy. Executives has luxury offices.
    -20% people generates 80% revenue

    Cleaning up at the bottom doesn't fix issues at the top.
