A company in transition

Software Engineer (Former Employee)

I worked at Linksys

ProsIf you are interested in developing small electronic devices that people like to use, like routers or other home or small business networking equipment, Linksys should be an excellent place to be. Lots of little and medium size projects, and very friendly people.

ConsLinksys has tended to farm primary development to shops outside the company.

Advice to Senior ManagementVastly improve QA. The high-end consumer products have been too complicated, unreliable and expensive. The company should as a whole figure out how to write and maintain product software. Staff should develop an eye for products that customers want to buy. Sometimes, the Cisco-level goals and ideals appear to distract more than help.

Sometimes devices like routers, which people rarely interact with during normal use, should have unobtrusive industrial design, rather than attempt to make a fashion statement; while other devices, like network radios, which people interact with all the time, should have been given some fashion sense.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
