Pros

Leading edge technology.
Company still leads projector market.
Helping see new products in production you helped with.
Great people to work with.

Cons

Chips in the field became commodity and became hard to compete.
Management team decided to offshore most of the work in mid to late 2000's which broke the company.
By the time a course correction was made it was too late to save the core of the company and engineers who began everything.

Advice to Management

Stick to core competencies of projector/scaling chips. Offer limited options for the TV and monitor market and beef up support to help most important customers. Rebuild the design team in the US and allow the Asian teams to develop chips to meet needs of their market.
