I have been working at MIPS Technologies full-time (More than a year)

Pros

MIPS has a legacy of very efficient RISC CPU architecture, with a business model of licensing IP cores or architecture licensing for further customization. The people at MIPS are intelligent, and with proper leadership and a well defined strategy this could be a much more rewarding place to work. Benefits are good, and perks such as bagels, fruit deliveries and Friday beer bust are nice.

Cons

Company needs to decide whether they are niche company or broad based. Integration into Imagination Technologies will help add resources and additional budget and hopefully improve accountability across the company

Advice to Management

Good luck to the new combined company!

    I have been working at MIPS Technologies full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Good brand name, good history. Customers like MIPS architecture and want to be loyal to it.

    Cons

    Horrible executive management team. Constant infighting. No one is responsible for anything - no accountability. CEO is in way over his head. Uncompetitive product line - doesn't meet need of customers but engineering, who defines products, doesn't listen to customers and, instead, tries to tell customers where they are wrong. No vision. No strategy. No goals.

    Advice to Management

    They already sold the company. For new management, learn about the CPU market and issues and establish a vision and strategy before mouthing off.

    I have been working at MIPS Technologies full-time

    Pros

    Great team players No politics Everyone works well together Leading architecture for consumer electronics Will be great company post acquisition (announced publicly)

    Cons

    Lack of vision and execution from CEO (addressed post acquisition) Sometimes NIH attitude or adversity to change creeps into decisions

    Advice to Management

    Execute integration of the two companies well and make sure that our voice is heard in the new combined company.
