    I have been working at Exar

    Pros

    Exar has a nice soccer field and tennis court on site. Located conveniently at the center of the east bay.

    Cons

    Marketing is not doing well in defining the product directions and specifications on existing products. With the lack of organization, marketing people seem out of place.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Exar has been transformed ever since the new CEO is in place, whether or not if this is lead to a positive change, the current CEO has done a tremendous achievement in terms of the stock price.

    No opinion of CEO
