    Pros

    Good products, good customer focus. Flexible if you get a good boss - most are.

    Uncertainty following the Avago acquisition and Broadcom integration. Current direction is not clear. But, it does look like they are finally putting a stop to too many programs that don't make money.

    Advice to Management

    Firm up the vision of the future, provide some clear leadership.
