    Good for a while, until changes at the CEO and upper management level screwed everything up

    Pros

    Good products, market leader, convenient location

    Advice to Management

    Stop having so many layoffs - build a good team and then keep it in place to get the job done

    Pros

    The senior management overhaul several years back set the wheels in motion for a major re-engineering effort (especially in software). There's extensive engineering talent, the company's silicon/software offerings right now are quite strong and the momentum we're gaining as a result is the real deal!

    Cons

    The reinvention has been a wild ride at times but overall a rewarding experience. Expect to work hard here - there is no free ride.
