Pros

Great coworkers...they're still my best friends today

Cons

Not a good environment for personal and professional growth, unless you're into the dealing with mediocre engineers and full blown bureaucracy

Advice to Management

the employees know what's really going on...so dont patronise them and show them a little more respect than they deserve

    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 Management

    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 Management

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