I worked at ViXS full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

interesting technologies, and that is about it.
I wish I could say anything else good about the company but I just can't

Cons

the worst managed company I have ever seen. Arrogant management, doesn't care about the employees and employee retention. Hires mostly oriental immigrants with low salaries.
The company is trying to compete in the big boys field but is far far behind when it comes to execution and quality, and doesn't stand a chance.
It advertises open positions all the time, but actually has had massive layoffs in the past few months, when the latest and the greatest was a couple of weeks ago.
Very bad workplace. It survived on investor's money and on government grants, but the money is running out.

Advice to Management

close the the company, the sooner the better. you don't stand a chance.
