    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at Ikanos for more than a year

    Pros

    Interesting projects, good and hard working engineers.

    Cons

    Bad management, laid off employees regularly without announcing public which resulted in creating a fearful and cynical environment. No gender diversity, difficult environment for women. For example some top executives talked inappropriately about women in all-hand meetings.

      Pros

      The engineers are absolutely brilliant!

      Cons

      The management is straight out of a Dilbert comic strip. It would be funny if it wasn't destroying the efforts put forth by the staff.

      Advice to Management

      Sell the IP as soon as possible and try to save the careers of the remaining staff.
