    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    The people I worked with are great

    Cons

    CSR bought a company and shut down 3 of 4 product lines, laid off almost 1000 people.
    Now CSR is bought by Qualcomm, more shut down and layoffs are under plan. It is going no where. There are several companies called CSR. I am talking about the UK company CSR PLC.

    Advice to Management

    Care about the people. Does not matter any more

    Pros

    Opportunites for advancement.
    Openness of Management to changes and ideas.
    Chance to start with a company near the ground floor.
    Extreme flexibility with hours and days.
    Excellent support for any self-run training.

    Lower pay than ideal, but still competitive.
    Some growing pains associated with things like clear job descriptions, etc.

    Advice to Management

    Management is doing a good job of taking advice from employees of all levels, however, delegation of responsibilities and more clearly iterated job descriptions would make time and project management considerably easier.
