          I worked at Emulex for more than 19 years

          Pros

          Great people, family environment except for the management.

          Cons

          Managers would lie to make themselves look good. Experts at making nonsense graphs and sweeping problems that are created by India groups under the rug. Willing to sacrifice product stability and reliability to save money, ie. India test groups and developers.

          Advice to Management

          Stop lying and trust your domestic employees. You get what you pay for is not just an old saying.
