I worked at Xradia

Pros

The technology is new and exciting
Co-workers are very nice like a family
One of the two product lines has no competition
Flexible working hours
Most mid-level managers are very good

Cons

Salary is 20% ~50% lower than industry average (unless you know the right person).
The management prefers to hire experienced rather than develop talents.
No, little if any, career advancement/professional development
Current new management is bringing in its crew. Politics is definitely apparent.
Communication from group to group and from the management to the employees is abysmal and inaccurate
Job description is inaccurate (borderline misleading).
Some positions workload is unreasonable (i.e. system engineers, field, manufacturing). Expect to work overtime
Very hectic environment with very little support.
It employs sink or swim on the job training method
Company is in transition phase from small to mid size (if it is not sold off before that happens).
Do not value the contribution of employees.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Start of with improving the communication.

    I worked at Xradia full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Good technology, growing sales and very, very smart people work there.

    Cons

    Salaries slightly below average, some upper management weakness in terms of keeping employees really focused on their jobs, and a surprising amount of bureaucracy for a company that had between 50-100 employees (grew from 50 to over 100 in last 3 years).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Help technical staff focus more on their jobs and less on large management reviews.
