Frustrated employees just pushing their weight around

I have been working at Applied Micro Circuits full-time

ProsPay and benefits are ok of mid-size company.

ConsToo many pessimists in senior roles and just block careers for passionate hard workers. Many long term frustrated employees just pushing their weight around. The management is too afraid to let the pessimists go and get fresh passionate workers.

Advice to Senior ManagementGet rid of the long term pessimists and let new blood flow.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
