    Downside risks still overhang the business.

    Pros

    It is a place to get started for new engineering graduates. Many opportunities exist in the network chip sector.

    Cons

    Industry is highly competitive. Vitesse doesn't hold any market leadership position. Alumni might have limited options once they leave the company.

    Advice to Management

    Stay focused.

  2. Good working environment, bad finances

    Pros

    The working environment was good, the technology is exciting, and the colleagues are great. Good cafeteria, free beverages. Compensation is OK. Management was good on engineering and HR issues.

    Cons

    The financial situation has been dire since 2001, constant risk of layoffs or closure. Management had no clue about financial issues.

    Advice to Management

    Well, it's too late now, sold to Microsemi. But they really needed to get someone on board who understood finances, maybe things would have turned out differently.
