    I worked at Actiontec

    Pros

    There are some engineers that are good to work with.

    Cons

    Not an environment to learn and grow. Management is incompetent. Management does not have a clue what to do. No vision, no innovation. There is poor team work. There is no project management at all levels of the company. Expect a lot of micromanagement. Expect to get blamed for management’s bad decisions and mistakes. No clear directions on the projects. Expect to work long hours with very little time left for your personal life. Do not expect any recognition. Your accomplishments will be claimed by someone in management without giving you any credits. Reward is by politics not by performance.

    The company hires freely, but fires just as freely. There are more fires than lay offs. Don't accept a job at Actiontec, you will be very sorry.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try to be innovative. Improve the quality of the existing products.

    I have been working at Actiontec

    Pros

    It's a small company. You can learn a lot of things.

    Cons

    It's not an innovative place. Management is bad. Lack of communication.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat your engineers better. Trust them more. Stop spending money building talent for other companies.
