    I have been working at Achronix Semiconductor full-time

    Pros

    Strong engineering group, lots of opportunities to learn within engineering at least. Involved in all aspects of hardware and EDA design

    Cons

    Management procrastinates, moves too slowly for a small company. It feels like a large corporation some times, given the pace of decision making. This is the one main flaw

    Advice to Management

    Management must take measured risks, and move fast, not procrastinate. They need to be bold, push the various teams to develop cutting edge stuff. Its better to be bold and lose the game, than be over-cautious, and always be mediocre.
