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 ManagementAdvice

Good luck to the new combined company!

    Pros

    MIPS has a great brand name and was a pioneer of the yesteryears.

    Cons

    CEO has put together a crony team. His neighbors and friends. He is on holiday most of the time and brags about his parties and his vacations. Throws all the locations out. Also a name dropper. He has no vision and keeps talking about we have a soul.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Change the CEO and fire the executive team and get someone hands-on in here.
