Management is self-centered, and is clueless about putting together a winning strategy & roadmap

I worked at QLogic

Pros

Decent salary and benefits. Decent work environment,

Cons

Lousy & complacent top management. Most of them are old-timers with fat RSU / stock positions and are content to draw their salary & bonus and cash in their stock. No real drive to put the company on a growth path again.
Unlikely to grow any time soon without some radical changes
Too complacent on the cash cow of FC products
No new design wins

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Don't look at Emulex and think you are winning.
Where is the innovation ? New products are not derived completely by looking at specs put together by existing customers. You need to invest in your own ideas and develop some differentiation.

    The first 5 years it was a great company to work for, but we laid off people, the work load increased and it got bad.

    I worked at QLogic full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    There are some great, hard-working people. It is a great location and beautiful facility, close to restaurants and the beach. QLogic has a great market niche, great designers, and is a technology leader.

    Cons

    The company has been managed by tight wads, more concerned about share holders than their employees. They tend not to be customer-focused which is frustrating to some employees. Like alot of American companies today, the CEO was formerly the CFO, focused on the bottom-line.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Place a hgher value on customer relationships and treating employees like you care about them.
