I have been working at MIPS Technologies full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

Good brand name, good history. Customers like MIPS architecture and want to be loyal to it.

Cons

Horrible executive management team. Constant infighting. No one is responsible for anything - no accountability. CEO is in way over his head. Uncompetitive product line - doesn't meet need of customers but engineering, who defines products, doesn't listen to customers and, instead, tries to tell customers where they are wrong. No vision. No strategy. No goals.

Advice to Management

They already sold the company. For new management, learn about the CPU market and issues and establish a vision and strategy before mouthing off.

    Cons

    Lack of vision and execution from CEO (addressed post acquisition)
    Sometimes NIH attitude or adversity to change creeps into decisions

    Advice to Management

    Execute integration of the two companies well and make sure that our voice is heard in the new combined company.

    Pros

    MIPS has a great brand name and was a pioneer of the yesteryears.

    Cons

    CEO has put together a crony team. His neighbors and friends. He is on holiday most of the time and brags about his parties and his vacations. Throws all the locations out. Also a name dropper. He has no vision and keeps talking about we have a soul.

    Advice to Management

    Change the CEO and fire the executive team and get someone hands-on in here.
