    Pros

    Great products, amazing people (whats left of them), good holiday package, interesting work.

    Cons

    Off shoring train wreck in progress.
    Low pay.
    People demoralized by layoffs.
    Fear of project cancellations.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You need to find some vision or move on. Reducing costs without investing in high growth technology is a recipe for fail.

    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    If you live for music, you might think you're happy. You'll pay by giving away a little bit of your soul everyday.

    Cons

    Management believes you can do engineering offshore. Innovation effectively left the building years ago.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please leave. You've killed the place. This really has been the best job in my life for 5+ years, the end was a nightmare.

    Doesn't Recommend
    Negative Outlook
    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    Interesting work especially if you like audio, great people. Good opportunities to move to different groups, good culture of promoting from within. Very friendly open place. Lots of interesting characters.

    Cons

    Low pay relative to other companies in similar areas. Recent layoffs = low morale. A lot of turn over as more senior engineers leave for other companies.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    increase incentives
