    I worked at Exar full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    People were strongest attraction to company. Many, like me, were there for over 10 years. Under staffed marketing departments yielded great opportunities for hands on experiences, yet highlighted the continuing over investment in engineering resources.

    Cons

    While achieving 40 years as a company in the valley is rare, it also highlights Exar's stagnation. Very successful core businesses like interface and communications perpetuated a rudderless ship. Over investment in non-growing businesses or acquisitions and under investment in core competencies kept Exar artificially small as compared to peers.

    Advice to Management

    New management (2012) is focused solely on preparing for acquisition. Massive layoffs help stock and profitability, but longer term the Company does not have a strong product or technology road
    map. Current management is only focused on short-term and their enrichment,


  2. "Living in the past"
