    Pros

    People, benefits and technology are silicon images strengths. Good position in the market as an innovative supplier. Promotes from within.

    Cons

    Revolving door management and inability to make quick decisions. Many non core business distractions sapped both resources and time from strategic imperatives.

    Pros

    It's filled with great people who will teach you what you need to know. They have company events quite frequently to get the people to have a good time.

    Cons

    There aren't many other employees who are around my age range. Nothing exciting ever happens within the office work area.

    Advice to Management

    Free food would be nice. Open cubes could be nice too. A lot of the employees are hidden away in their own cubes, but it'll be nice to have employees talk to each other while they're working.

    Pros

    Interesting technology, decent location if you're in the Valley, breakfast on Wednesdays

    Cons

    No long term planning at all, the bonus structure is far too complicated, no strategic vision

    Advice to Management

    Too late - you've already sold the company. It would have been great if you would have fixed the problems and actually had better sales team.
