    Pros

    Leading edge technology, diverse team, freedom to share ideas and make decisions, enough flexibility to try new things combined with challenge of meeting financial and business goals. There is a lot of high-quality engineering talent. Management is extremely experienced. I trust the vision.

    Cons

    Taking longer than anticipated to turn around and reach vision. Not a lot of frills, perks or over-the-top benefits. Infrastructure boasts a lot of inefficiencies and many internal procedures are too manual.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Communicate top-down vision more regularly with the team. Be more visible. Encourage camaraderie among team members which seems to be in small cliques and not a lot of overall company spirit. Everyone is working toward realizing your vision, but there seems to be little excitement among the team.

    Way too much office politics and fighting between the execs.

    I worked at MoSys

    Pros

    If you enjoy working in a family business, this is the place for you. As long as you keep the CEO and his people happy, it doesn't matter what you do or whether you deliver. Miraculously, the stock seems to be going up.

    Cons

    It is run like it is the CEO's family business. If he likes somebody, it doesn't matter if they deliver or not they still hang around. IDT folks Nobody really understood why Prism was acquired, when we could have just licensed the serdes from them. Magnalynx guys are just sitting in Iowa and collecting their money.

    Engineering and Marketing execs don't get along. Marketing people seem to come and go. Sales people don't stay more than 6 months.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Encourage team work and get rid of non-performing executives. Except for the CFO and the CTO, all others seem to be out to attack others.
