Pros

Just by hiring people with big title, lazy, big salary and doing nothing just call for a meetings.
buying companies with no product that can make profit or enhance the company sales.

Cons

1- Moving production to (offshore).
2- No new product.
3- Spent there cash by buying junk companies.
4- Sales party in Las Vegas & Sales = 0

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Go after good product and protect your hard working Engineers.
Do not wast your cash for for buying companies that loosing money and it will add more expense that EXAR can not handle.

    Pros

    Not much to report on pros. They have a sports field where you can play soccer. The benefits are competitive.

    Cons

    The current management does not have any intention to create a stable or viable company. I am certain they would sell to whomever would buy the company. The expectation of existing employees is over the top.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give up trying to just make the company look good and try to build a real company that has vision.

    Doesn't Recommend
    Negative Outlook
