    I worked at Symmetricom

    Pros

    Good work-life balance. Benefit is ok. It dominates in its niche area. The facility is well maintained and there's small gym for employees in the building.

    Cons

    The exec doesn't seem to have good strategies to grow the company, wasted too much time and money in acquiring companies but not operating them well. HR has too much authority.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It definitely needs a good leader. The management team has to take more effort to grow the company rather than play politics.

    I worked at Symmetricom

    Pros

    Absolutely outstanding technology. Opportunity to make a difference at the company and in the world.

    Cons

    Difficulty executing. Culture at times complacent. Too many special projects for one-off customers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Accelerate exit from traditional telecom. PTP will only get you so far. Invest in new technologies leveraging physics capabilities.
