    Pros

    Great benefit package! This was the best health insurance I had through a succession of mergers and acquisitions. I worked with a great team and found management to be very supportive. I mostly telecommuted but when I was on-site, it seemed like a nice facility.

    Cons

    Wasn't there long before Virage Logic was acquired by Synopsys, so I didn't have much time to get to know the company culture well before it changed.

    Pros

    We had the opportunity to work on different technologies.

    Cons

    Schedules were too tight and

    Advice to Management

    Believe in your people and give them more opportunities. Calibrate your perceptions on your people very often. Employees can have knowledge spurts and can surge higher at times. You should identify this and reward them/give them bigger roles

    Pros

    Virage was an aggressive startup that developed high-performance memories, and succeeded ina very competitive environment.

    Cons

    Management was "tribal": if you weren't part of the tribe, then you were not trusted as much or listened to as carefully.

    Advice to Management

    Listen more carefully to contrarian voices within the company.

    Pros

    Overall, the IQ level was very high per employee, many of the team members were driven to be successful and had a good idea of what was needed to grow the business.

    Cons

    The management team was very secretive, lacked communication skills and were focused on the technical aspects of the business as opposed to the business side of selling technology. The compensation was weak, the financial condition of the company was in question and the levels of investment for the future was weak.

    Advice to Management

    Allow people to do their job. Allow senior level people the opportunity to focus their attention on what they know and what they can accomplish. Enable the organization to drive by giving guidance on what is important, what areas to focus and what the overall goals of the company are...that would go a long ways.

    Pros

    Was good as a start-up for a Master student. I learned a lot at the initial years and gained professional experience.

    Cons

    There was no motivation form the management and no chances for promotion. After a few years it seemed like a standing water, no new initiatives and projects

    Pros

    - good technical team - supportive senior who always wiling to share knowledge and help ramping up juniors - relaxed timings -

    Cons

    - poor management - low salaries compared to industry - very rigid and focused approach to technical training

    Advice to Management

    - Work on employee's training in the area they love and have strengths for - make sure only good people's manager got the job of being a manager, rather than promoting someone with good technical but sub-par management skills
