Disapproves of CEO

I have been working at Applied Micro Circuits full-time

Pros

Pay and benefits are ok of mid-size company.

Cons

Too many pessimists in senior roles and just block careers for passionate hard workers. Many long term frustrated employees just pushing their weight around. The management is too afraid to let the pessimists go and get fresh passionate workers.

Advice to Management

Get rid of the long term pessimists and let new blood flow.

    "Short lived. Not a place to expect to build a career. Get a high salary or be disappointed when it ends."

    Pros

    Small company, not a lot of projects -- expect to focus on one thing and do it well.

    Cons

    Management is hit or miss...employees are expendable and you'll eventually be gone (sooner rather than later) -- even if the CE0 personally praises your work -- tomorrow (literally) is another day and you'll be gone. This company has revenue issues that will make it difficult to be employed for any meaningful length of time.

    Advice to Management

    Figure out how to run the business and retain top talent -- it will help with long term revenue issues and achieving overall business objectives.
