Pros

Amazing engineering talents; some very smart people, and some very advanced technologies, Very dedicated work force; would rise to the occasion to meet deadlines and to resolve critical issues, regardless of weekend, holidays, or what not. Most engineers are very nice and work together very well; I learn something new every day.

Cons

Very spread out in terms of geographic sites (Austin, Sunnyvale, Boston, Fort Collins, Orlando, Shanghai, Hyderabad, Bangalore, and Markham in Canada). Pretty much every SOC project involves at least 6 sites, so depending on your function, an employee may have design sync-up meetings early in the morning or late in the evening.

Advice to Management

Figure out the right products to design; improve business management operations, sales operations, and manufacturing operations.

    Pros

    Good benefits and decent salary. God help you if you get hired at the wrong salary or level though - nearly impossible to get a promotion, let alone raised a couple of levels. No real rewards for success other than staying on your boss's good side.

    Cons

    No real business processes or infrastructure. No career path. The company is basically run on personality. Who is loudest, who sounds the most convincing in a meeting. Timelines and plans are thrown out the window every time someone yells louder or someone leaves and someone new comes in. No wonder the company is struggling.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on a few markets, clean house at VP level, streamline.
