    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.

    Serious lack of visibility. The company is confused about product road-map amd product positioning.
