No opinion of CEO

Pros

Join here if you don't have a personnel life.. its an exciting company working on leading edge protocols like HDMI, MHL etc..

Cons

Consumer electronics companies need to compete on penny basis and this puts lot on pressure on employees to meet the aggressive schedules with absolutely with no additional resources.
You may end up working on Christams, Thanksgiving and even on Jan 1st...This is very routine for engineering staff..

Advice to Management

Please staff adequately

    Pros

    Talented engineers and a good working working environment. Information within local branch can be shared verbally and assistance is provided when dealing with difficult issues.

    Cons

    This is company that has been plaqued by leading the race in new HDMI feature introduction rather than actual sustenance of product sales. Job responsibility is spread too wide. It is essentially a startup company in guise of a public one. Management is heavily dependent on execution rather than getting the job right. Upper management seems to think that IP is more valuable than employee contribution. Priorities and project management is a joke, all projects have deadlines within the same time period. Some departments have too many line level managers. Hardly any proposition for job improvement laterally or vertically.

    Advice to Management

    Value your employees. Get a real Product Management and Marketing team.
