Pros

In general, Exar has competent employees who are nice people. There are lots of people with 10 or more years at the company who manage to keep the company going.

Cons

Exar has a broad focus for such a relatively small company (about 500 employees). It is easy for the smaller projects to get lost among the handful of larger projects.

    Negative Outlook
    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    Benefits are reasonable but not great.

    Cons

    Very very negative and accusatory environment. No encouragement for creative people to express ideas and improvements.

    Advice to Management

    Institute review of managers by those who report to them. Talented people will not work here unless this happens. Also when you committ to a legal agreement have integrity and honor it. Backing out of signed legal agreements will ultimately lead to disastrous results.
