    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.
