    I worked at Xirrus full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Got to work with leading-edge WiFi technology. This company illustrates how a great product truly requires great management.

    Cons

    XMS V.P. and Director of Engineering came in as a pair. Very pleasant to work with but they had a difficult start as most of the better engineers were soon removed. Fortunately the pair had contractors from their previous, out-of-business company they brought in. Not as good, but extremely loyal. A lack of transparency in performance evaluations was simply due to the fact that neither had the capability to do so, having no degrees or real experience in their fields.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Discrimination based on sexual orientation is illegal. The appearance of firing someone within three weeks of registering a complaint shows fundamentally bad judgement and casts a suspicion of incompetence across all areas of a company and its products.

    I have been working at Xirrus part-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    This was a great company and I loved being a part of its growth from a start-up who handled its own sales and service to being a larger player in the market that utilized channel partners to handle the sales.

    Cons

    Difficult to gauge where you stood in the eyes of management.
