    Pros

    Technically excellent people with engineering driven teams. Experienced at VLSI development using experts across geographic locations. Management is extremely technical having grown through from engineers.

    Long hours and condensed schedules. Same as the rest of the industry. Not much work/life balance.

    Keep up the great work. Get a good market foothold in Flash and build it out into a core technology.

    Pros

    Lots of great people. The product offering is quite strong and competitive. Very competitive salary. The work / life balance is pretty good.

    Cons

    Not too many downsides to list. The company is not huge, which is not necessarily bad but can limit job mobility and promotions.

    Advice to Management

    The management team is doing a good job of balancing growth and supporting existing products and customers.
