I worked at Emulex as a contractor (less than a year)

Pros

Great engineers, interesting projects, very interesting space with lots of competition. Great learning environment, and good combination of real time device engineering and optimization of end user application performance.

Cons

Very large workload. Much of the time we seemed overworked and understaffed. Many engineers had to cover multiple bases, in addition to covering their own project.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

More communications with the troops, better staffing for given workload.

    I have been working at Emulex full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    if you are good in playing dirty politics then this is the place. or you know some VP or director then you can get direct entry in this company. This company works like a private limited company. I have seen many people getting recruited who were Relatives/known to VPs. Those people gets disproportionate favor.

    Cons

    Here designation matters a lot. people talk to you after checking your designation. Hypocrite people.
    lots of dirty politics. Managers don't respect you. Lots of VPs and directors. Long queue for manager aspirants. Once you are in, you can understand why this company has not grown to a billion dollar company despite the fact they are in business for last 30 years.
    Lay off happening currently. Company is with the tag "FOR SALE".

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Remove the extra fat.
