    Former Employee - Software Engineer in San Jose, CA

    I worked at LynuxWorks full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    Engineering manager has unrealistic expectations. Very strong opinions which while correct are not always relevent. He then talks over other s and is unwilling to listen to more relevent points. Not always willing to be honest with unpleseant details. Source code is poorly organized and information for new engineers is not well communicated.

    Cons

    Pretty good equipment, fairly nice physical plant.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat your employees as assets to be developed, instead of equipment to be discarded when it becomes inconvient.

    I worked at LynuxWorks

    Pros

    Salary is decent and very little bureaucracy. Some very good 1st level managers there.

    Cons

    Drifting as a company for 20+ years and is still private. Top management needs to be replaced with a new team. This management team is unable to guide the company in an effective manner. If you have a management team which after 20 years is going sideways or down it is time for a change.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    See above.

    Pros

    A good group of internal people with very high level of skills who follow out of need for employment.

    Cons

    Executive management skills are not executive skills and reflected in business decline. Integrity is not a concern.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Resignation is the only correct path, but then there are those internal employees who are dependent on their situation.

    I worked at LynuxWorks

    Pros

    location, coworkers, management, understanding of personal life vs work life, challenging work, cross training

    Cons

    not enough engineers to get the amount of work assigned done on time without working ridiculous hours
    it's been years since they gave pay raises

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    more diversity in your products/markets, you rely to heavily on one market (military)

    I have been working at LynuxWorks

    Pros

    embedded hardware that is more than commodity PC and some employees that still know what they do and some users that still know what they want and some people that still value rational reason

    Cons

    line of command that intersect with other lines of command multiple times with each other ; overly exposure of lower levels to external world without thought of professional stance and protective mediation

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    look around

    Doesn't Recommend
