Pros

The people are some of the friendliest I have ever worked with. All the people that are left are hard working and multi-talented. The company runs like a small business with a free-for-all mentality. If you are driven, you are free to do as much as you want across barriers. There is such a lack of management we have to survive on our own. Your groups success depends on your effort with little contribution from the thin management, If you don't like managers then this is the company for you.

Cons

Don't expect any bonuses if you are a workaholic. You will get no extra anything for killing yourself. There is a lack of structure across the design teams. The company up to this point has been run like a holding company. Rumor has it that's about to change.

    Pros

    Excellent technology, great customers, very broad market appeal.

    Cons

    Poor LBO strategy saddled the company with non-operational debt load that is paralyzing. Despite an unbelievable pedigree, great products, operational efficiency etc, we are constantly crippled by this LBO.

    Advice to Management

    Put your employees first again. It was not their decision to mortgage this great company.

    Pros

    Good work/life balance. Talented and knowledgeable colleagues. Nice peers to work with.

    Cons

    Senior management has their heads stuck up their a$$. Clueless, self-preserving, obnoxious, no strategy or direction. Only care about their compensation and short-term goals.

    Advice to Management

    Your PEOPLE are your best asset. Give them good, challenging work to do. Less red tape. Really CARE about your people.
