    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    -Profit sharing 2x a year
    -Lots of good competent technical people (design, apps, FAEs)
    -Not a whole lot of middle management, they run a lean operation
    -Chances to do a lot of little things and grow on the job

    Cons

    -Not a whole lot of middle management, not much career advancement possible
    -Not a lot of change, which is both good and bad. They keep doing good things well, but how long can that continue to work in a mature market like analog ICs
    -Profit sharing 2x a year, whether you're a slacker or a superstar, everyone gets the same percentage

    Advice to Management

    Be sure to get out and see customers. Don't get too reliant on FAEs to do all of your product definition. Don't be afraid to take business at slightly lower margin to hold onto existing sockets.
