    I worked at RadiSys full-time

    Pros

    I loved the working environment when I worked there. Colleagues are very friendly.

    Cons

    I heard there were a lot of changes in the company. Some business strategy changes and seems it has a negative impact on business.

    Advice to Management

    No.

    Pros

    I definitely enjoyed most of the people I worked with at Radisys. Very smart, hardworking group of engineers and managers

    Cons

    Confused direction and priorities for the company, causing a great deal of stress and overtime, and a fair amount of throwing people under the bus

    Advice to Management

    Set a clear direction, discourage abusive behavior by management, value employees' personal time and offer some hope for long term employment

    Pros

    Benefits were good Target market for technology was interesting

    Part of a slow, steady, methodical restructuring effort after getting acquired. Lethargy and fear abound in the company as it has restructured itself some many times

    I worked at RadiSys (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Very qualified and talented employees.

    Cons

    Frequently changing strategy can leave you out in the cold. Hard to plot a career through the changes.

    I have been working at RadiSys full-time

    Pros

    Leading edge technologies make for interesting projects with a broad range of responsibilities and autonomy. There's a tremendous amount of flexibility with regards to work/life balance, but that can also get carried away on the former if you don't pay attention to the latter.

    Cons

    Multi-site off-shore engineering can make for odd or off hours. Traditional markets are extremely challenged, shrinking and overcrowded with competitors. Traditional (good) culture of the company is fading and unclear what emerges post transition.

    Advice to Management

    Focus, focus, focus! Stop hedging and commit.

    I have been working at RadiSys full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Engineering team has been working on leading technologies for decades. It has been always interesting and fulfilling. Development teams have had open design choices; design decisions belong to the development teams. Great comradeship and friendship. People stay friends beyond work boundaries.

    Cons

    Tough business to stay competitive and successful. Many changes and re-orgs over time to stay relevant and profitable. Perceived low value-add in Radisys products even though significant innovation and effort went into them.

    Advice to Management

    Radisys needs to find a way to get adequately paid for the value it delivers to its customers. It seems that Radisys customers are getting a "good" deal from Radisys and are benefiting from the competitive landscape.

    I worked at RadiSys full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Radisys was a good place to work. They provided opportunities for growth and to work on new projects. Development was mainly offshore but once you understood the culture offshore sites where good to work with. The work environment was very fast paced.

    Cons

    Company had a very diverse product mix. Sometime finding the synergy between the groups was challenging. Must be willing to work non-standard hours with sales, support and engineering located throughout the world

    I have been working at RadiSys full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great people, good salary, flexible hours, lots of freedom.

    Cons

    Company has taken a nose dive and the best employees have either been let go or jumped ship! Not sure the company is going to make it. Very low morale at work, all fringe benefits are gone, no opportunities for advancement, "every penny counts" which means forget about a raise! There is NO work-life balance. If you want to keep working there you will be plugged in 24/7. I used to enjoy working for Radisys, now those of us few who are left in Hillsboro are seeking other employment for fear the company will shut down. Not a happy or fun place to work anymore.

    Advice to Management

    Find a way to treat your remaining employees better or just sell the company. It's rough being on a sinking ship, especially when your captain would just as soon throw you overboard!

    Pros

    An environment that allows for growth and experience through wearing many hats. Flexible work environment.

    Cons

    If you have a problem setting boundaries for your own work-life balance you could work yourself to death.
