    I have been working at Ikanos full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    A job close to home for most part.

    Cons

    The biggest issue is the products are really behind its competitor, no matter how it is viewed.
    To make things worse, the market is shrinking as customers move from coppers to fibers (just like what Google is doing). The quarterly sales report reflects that.
    There also have been too many changes on the personnel in the past few years, layoff and layoff, all the execs have been replaced or fired and is still going on....

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Figure out the right products before investors lose hopes.
