    I worked at Virage Logic full-time

    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.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    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

    I worked at Virage Logic

    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 ManagementAdvice

    Listen more carefully to contrarian voices within the company.

    High IQ organization with an opportunity to be successful given the opportunity and direction.

    I worked at Virage Logic

    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 ManagementAdvice

    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.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    - 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

    I worked at Virage Logic full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Salary was not very bad. Insurance was average. Relationships between the co-workers was normal. Some additional benefits like loan. Everything was better first years: Company sponsored holiday trips, often business trips, atmosphere, appreciation, etc.,

    Cons

    While the company was growing the quality of products, workers, atmosphere etc. was constantly failing down. The worst and the cause of everything was management. Best employees, who created products were going, those who were completely unable to work, only intrigues and brown-nosing were getting promotions.
