    I have been working at Emulex as an intern (less than a year)

    Pros

    Everyone is very easy to approach and talk to. It's a really good environment to learn about this industry and great way to learn about teamwork and communication between different teams.

    Cons

    A lot happens on a day to day basis, some days you're overwhelmed and others it feels exceptionally slow. I feel this is the same no matter where you go though.

    I worked at Emulex full-time

    Pros

    Lots of strong technical people and many years of quality products. When I was there they paid well and worked to retain people.

    Cons

    In the last decade they grew from a small-medium company to a medium-large company. They also were forced to shift from controlling a niche tech market (fiber channel storage networking) to competing in a commodity market (converged networking). In my opinion they did not adapt fast enough and are struggling to remain relevant.

    So-so company and lack of clear leadership

    I have been working at Emulex full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Work is interesting, opportunity to learn and excel technically. Smart and friendly co-workers

    Cons

    Lacking leadership. Communciation is bad, no sharing of information. Cliques system at different levels of management. Add to that, they have grown inorganically with acquiring companies - management folks tend to form tight groups with their own buddies and not open to good ideas from outside that group.
    Don't expect salary raises to come by easily.
    With the technical talent that they have, the technology of products do not reflect that.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Look around - see and learn from other successful companies where open communication plays a critical part.

    Our manager and team members are the greatest.
    Good work environment, nice colleagues and managers

    Company politics. Some guys were sacrificed due to politics. And also not good for company health.
    Bad top management and some project was cancelled during final stage.

    Could be more cultural for the company
