Pros

In general, salary or compensation, in terms of base salary, was competitive. Also, the majority of the technical colleagues were generally intelligent and motivated.

Cons

Company was consistently unprofitable for a very long time. That disaffected the opportunity for extra compensation in terms of bonus payments. Strategic direction from upper management also appeared to be unclear, as projects were started and abandoned many times.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

More strategic focus is needed. Management needs a better job of understanding the competitive and technological landscape, drivers, and evolution in order to place the correct bets for the success of the enterprise.

    Pros

    It was a great learning experience: Spinning off from AMD, going public, building a company from the ground up- all great experiences.

    Cons

    Based on recent decisions, the new management team appears to only be interested in how they personally can profit. Long term, hard working and talented employees were terminated by management who appeared to care very little about their past contributions, in a very uncaring way.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It is very unfortunate that you are treating this company and the employees with such a lack of respect and concern.

    Pros

    Dedicated and hardworking employees who have worked long and hard

    Cons

    Inexperienced and unskilled upper management, frequent organizational changes, no strategic direction.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Determine a strategic direction, hire upper management that have experience in the business and technology, stop blaming employees for your errors in judgement
