Former Employee - Principal Engineer in Santa Rosa, CA
Former Employee - Principal Engineer in Santa Rosa, CA
No opinion of CEO

Pros

Challenging projects. Entrepreneurial environment. Cooperative employes. State of the art equipment and opportunity to work with highly skilled engineers. Always had a chance to see how the business end operates when working in a very technical area.

Cons

Money is tight which can make it difficult to institute improvements. They are in the process of down sizing some areas. If you are unlucky enough to be working in one of those areas your job could be a risk. As expected this is no different from any other company in the same finical situation.

Advice to Management

Companies that were acquired whose products are not telecom related but proffiable should be given more finical resources relative to the revenue that division brought into the company.

    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    It is very important to be the your own boss when you are working on things and deciding what to do next with feedback from your manager.

    Cons

    It is probably very common in the market but that there are stringent time limitations to come up with something new that can be applied right away.

    Advice to Management

    The leaders should realize and tell business managers about what is though and why things might take longer and needs more time and effort.
