    I have been working at Tensilica full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    The technology is very interesting and flexible
    Getting some good customers
    Very bright people
    Impressive marketing makes them appear bigger
    Almost a university atmosphere sometimes

    Cons

    Little possibility for career growth
    Highly unorganized. We try to do everything and therefore most things don't get done well.
    Management makes promises that it can't keep to employees and customers
    Low compensation - everyone gets almost the same raise (small, if any), regardless of contribution

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get aligned, stop the internal politics, empower people and hold them accountable (both for the bad and with rewards for the good)

    Doesn't Recommend
    Neutral Outlook
    Disapproves of CEO
