    Great tech -- tough business

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee) Sunnyvale, CA

    ProsWorking at SPI provides a chance to develop cutting-edge high-performance digital signal processors that people can actually program efficiently.

    ConsThe company has since gone out of business, which makes it hard to continue to work for them. Semiconductor time to revenue is brutal.

    Advice to Senior ManagementThe company in general could do a better job communicating overall business strategy and important events to personnel, to build feeling of inclusion.

    decent place to work if you like the technology, but check out where they are at financially.

    Software Engineer (Former Employee) Sunnyvale, CA

    Prosinteresting next-gen technology startup. Came out of stanford research. top tech guys are very motivated and competent. lifestyle attitude is good.

    Consalready big for a startup -- some internal politics. Nasty deadlines, not great communication back to upper mgmt. Middle mgmt a pain -- not a very flat structure. Motivation can be difficult. It's a heavily capitalized VC company, and one gets the feeling the VC's are micromanaging. They seem to stress out the top managment regularly with changing goals and hoops and barrels. Lots of firefighting and jumping on hand grenades.

    Advice to Senior Managementneed to communicate the company vision better. Need to stand up to VC's and base decisions on reality, not wish lists or arbitrary metrics.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    incompetent software organization

    Member of Technical Staff (Former Employee)

    ProsOffshoot of Stanford research holds promise of interesting work.

    ConsSoftware organization was a train wreck. Too many management positions were held by Stanford PhDs with no industry experience, decision making was incompetent. Bug rate of software was in the stratosphere, customers (of which there were few) were very dissatisfied.

    Advice to Senior ManagementGet your heads out of the clouds, solve operational problems, and make sure middle management is competent.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
