    Pros

    Learned many new things about development and development practices. Increased experience in many programming languages as well as learned new technologies.

    Cons

    There isn't anything that I would call a "con". The job and the company are very straight forward.

    Advice to Management

    I don't have any advice for Management. This field should be allowed to be left blank

    Pros

    Good campus and work area

    Not good managements. All they wants are the numbers.

    Pros

    People are great here. I can honestly I enjoy working with 99.9% of the people and I've learned a lot about products and job responsibilities.

    Cons

    Company has been acquired by Avago Technologies and everyone I know have no idea what's going to happen.

    Advice to Management

    Only relating to the Execs... once in a while stop by and say "Hi" or something even if you don't know us. Execs are very disengaged with the rest of the company it almost seems like they don't care.

    Pros

    Emulex is a great company to work for! Compensation is at average or a bit above and the benefits are good.

    Cons

    Can't really think of any, this is an above average place to work.

    Pros

    Decent benefits, on campus gym and many discounts. Work-life balance exists for some. Business casual environment with jeans on Fridays. Central location, easy to get to.

    Cons

    Benefit cost to the employee has gone up over the years. None existent work-life balance for some. Very expense driven. Always looking at the past and not enough attention on the future.

    Advice to Management

    focus on training and career paths for all employees. Provide adequate training for management, so they actually know how to successfully manage people.
