    Pros

    The benefits are fairly good at Emulex. The facilities are pretty well taken care of and IT is on top of most issues. The organization is pretty well-oiled and seems to be able to handle multiple geographical locations well.

    Generally, engineers are pretty able and dependable. The experience level is high with most engineers in the 8+ year range.

    Cons

    Management is driven by how amicable engineers are too them. There seems to be way too much leeway given to certain employees while others are held to a different standard or nitpicked. This inconsistency is noticed by engineers and it does affect morale.

    The higher experience and seniority level means that there is not much chance of career growth unless one looks for it elsewhere.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Fairness in dealing with all engineers is extremely important. There should be proper recognition of employees who work hard - options et al. need to be more generous - in line with industry standards.

    Pros

    Great pay, great projects, exciting changes in industry. Company is doing its best to position itself for growth in the market.

    Cons

    Technology shift from FC is complicating business as usual. Also with business model moving from ASIC designer to solutions provider, stability of work has been reduced.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Provide clearer direction for engineers in departments with limited roadmap.
