Pros

Good place to learn as there is a BIG staff shortage.

Cons

Mindspeed is stuck in the same rut for over 5 years now with no prospect of change for the better. Revenue is declining and it may not last through the downturn. Mindspeed's management is incompetent. The CEO has few ideas and has little vision to take the company forward. Most good engineers and managers have left. For employees, the company offers an unrewarding atmosphere to work in. There is too much politics for a small company.

Advice to Management

Get your act together and start making some money already.

    Mindspeed is a terrible place to work, due to very bad upper management.

    Pros

    There are many competent engineers who work at Mindspeed. Many of them have been with the company for a long time, before it spun out of Conexant and Rockwell. It is a very interesting working environment from a technical point of view.

    Cons

    Upper management is completely incompetent, and they are only interested in making as much money for themselves as possible while taking advantage of the "worker bees". There is a tradition of abusive micro-management driven directly from the top, which prevents all senior, middle and lower managers from doing their job properly.

    Advice to Management

    Find a way to get the board of directors to fire the CEO. As long as he is in that position, the company will continue to fail.
