    I worked at Emulex full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    High performance culture. Good pay. Decent internal communication

    Cons

    Mediocre to poor benefits as the company worked through the last market crash and they never improved. As a small company, they had a family feel that was kept in Sales until Sr. mgmt changes. Engineering execution struggled in Ethernet.

    Advice to Management

    Seek the balance of expecting high performance from everyone and make sure your high performers have a personal life as well.

    Uncertainty following the Avago acquisition and Broadcom integration. Current direction is not clear. But, it does look like they are finally putting a stop to too many programs that don't make money.
