    Pros

    Environment was not high stress and employees are not micro-managed. Interesting designs.

    Cons

    Communication with management and team leader is lacking at times. At times you are left without a project to work on or are thrown into a project near the middle or end.

    Advice to Management

    More feedback to staff is helpful.

    Pros

    Some good designers, good system knowledge cross over to circuit design. Good systems understanding.

    Cons

    unfair recognition/promotion structure. Political environment. Management is relatively new and probably not geared up yet to take the position responsibly. Lack of accountability of management towards retention and unfair recognition/compensation/promotion.

    Advice to Management

    Attention to employee satisfaction and career development should be given. Skip-level meetings to decipher and control political activity up the chain.

    Pros

    Management has created the right environment for creative engineers. The engineering teams are very competent. The development work is very challenging and interesting.

    Cons

    Poor executive decisions on where to take the company. The company did not react to competitive products quick enough to keeps its position in the marketplace.

    Advice to Management

    Put the proper resources into place to stay competitive with the other broadband IC suppliers. Focus on the companies core competencies.

    Pros

    Management promotes and allows employees to develop and implement new ideas for more efficient methods to complete tasks. The emphasis on "getting the job done" rather than monitoring the way in which it is done.

    Cons

    The company is "engineering" biased. Some of the decisions made are not necessarily good for or enhance the "bottom - line".
