Pros

Loyal long term customers who work closely with the company
Good opportunity to collaborate with partners across industry to drive innovation

Cons

Culture is suffering with new management focus on numbers and metrics over people and innovation
Difficult market space being replaced by processors and ASSPs
Lack of market driven focus, engineering too powerful

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Listen to the market, don't let engineering control the filter on market input.

    Pros

    Very bright group of people to work with.

    Cons

    Direct communication seems to be a stumbling block for this company. It is not perceived as a positive thing and as a result, too many meetings, not enough clear decisions and actual plan of action.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Say what you mean and mean what you say.
