Pros

I like working with my team, professional group of engineers. I get the opportunity to work and collaborate with other areas of the business. Company is niche focused in space.

    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.

    I have been working at Ikanos full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Company working towards a common goal, opportunity to wear a lot of different hats in my role, renewed focus on delivering on-time and on-schedule both internally and to our customers generating good buzz in the company. Great opportunity for those who want a bigger role in a smaller company, those who want more visibility in their accomplishments.

    Cons

    Industry has taken a beating in the past few years, our technology is not being as respected / talked-about as it should be.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    We need to build a stronger marketing campaign around our technology and our company to get people talking about us again!
