    Pros

    CEO is very very competent. The stock price goes up. How many CEOs have we seen that have laid off thousands of employees and drive the stock price down to zero.

    Health Benefit was upgraded this year to lower price and make it simpler for employees.

    We work hard and long hours but this is the first time in my career where I feel I am being compensated for my.

    Cons

    Vacation balances were ended. Not sure how this will work in the long run.

    Many Excellent people were laid off. Some excellent people left after the LSI acquisition and Broadcom acquisition.

    Great company to work at if you don't want to get promoted.

    Our Workforce is aging and we are not recruiting younger employees. I think this is very dangerous.

    Advice to Management

    We need to invest in younger employees
