    Current Employee - Senior Principal Engineer in Newport Beach, CA
    Doesn't Recommend
    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    The pay is reasonable. Colleagues vary from average to good.

    Cons

    Constant layoffs. Every project is highest priority, must tape-out immediately, then canned due to lack of customers. No intelligent marketing direction at all. Lack of adequate resources and sensible planning hurts everyone. Company has split/down sized from over 8000 people in 2001 to a little over 2000 now. This number is about to get even smaller. Quite remarkable that it still exists....

    Advice to Management

    The market is strong. There is good demand for product. Make appropriate products. Engineers design the ICs, managers designing powerpoint slides is not really on the same level of usefulness to the company bottom line, however many colors and fonts are used....
