    Pros

    The food at the cafeteria is cheap and great. The managers are all engineers, so you can easily discuss technical details with them. Design teams have access to the best EDA tools available, and the CAD team is very capable. There are lots of opportunities for engineers with 0-7 years of experience to grow professionally.

    Cons

    Lots of internally designed IP simply doesn't work, but the management organization makes it impossible to hold the owners accountable. Since the advent of shuttle tapeouts, lots of projects seem to be "test chips" that never get into production. The IT infrastructure is terrible -- probably 25% of the time your project will have problems with the file server, disk space, jobs not being run on the servers, etc. Duplication - multiple teams are designing different versions of the same IP or SoC. The video and cell phone groups consume a lot of resources but don't contribute revenue. Management benchmarks its current projects in development to those from competitors that have already been in production for several years. In the last two years, lots of top 25% engineers have left but management won't fire the bottom 10%.

    Advice to Management

    Abandon video and cell phones. Return to focusing on storage, communications, and wireless. Eliminate the duplication in designing IPs and SoCs. Fire the bottom 10%. Ban taping out "test chips". Use all the money you saved to build an acceptable IT infrastructure and reward your top employees. Be aggressive in defining innovative new products.
