    Pros

    Excellent technology - leader in Video Standards and design. Extremely bright engineers, but the Operations side is staffed by incompetents who sometimes don't even know how to use a computer.

    Cons

    Company is run by short-term focused CEO mainly concerned with building his own wealth. This culture trickles down into management. Upper management disconnected from workers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen more to engineers and other technical people. Don't commit to projects when you don't know what's invovled. Don't assume things will get done just because you say they should. Less arrogance.

    Lots of good talent but we may have swung the pendulum too far to execution.

    I have been working at Silicon Image

    Pros

    It has a set of very intelligent and hard working engineers and they do a great job pushing themselves and technology. These same engineers do not plan at all and it is very challenging to get them to plan and do the job they agreed to do.

    Cons

    These smart engineers do not plan and that comes in the way of execution to plan. Management now is so focussed on execution taht they are not willing to allow evena weeks slip without reacting to the sslip.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If you want aggressive schedules - one has to at leas be open to the idea of not being able to execute to plan. The only time the teams are able to hit every date on every project is if the team is very conservative and then they hit all the schedules.

    By being aggressive and at the same time insisting on on time delivery - teams are being burnt out and they will have atendency to leave.
