    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at LynuxWorks full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Engineering manager has unrealistic expectations. Very strong opinions which while correct are not always relevent. He then talks over other s and is unwilling to listen to more relevent points. Not always willing to be honest with unpleseant details. Source code is poorly organized and information for new engineers is not well communicated.

    Cons

    Pretty good equipment, fairly nice physical plant.

    Advice to Management

    Treat your employees as assets to be developed, instead of equipment to be discarded when it becomes inconvient.

    Pros

    Salary is decent and very little bureaucracy. Some very good 1st level managers there.

    Cons

    Drifting as a company for 20+ years and is still private. Top management needs to be replaced with a new team. This management team is unable to guide the company in an effective manner. If you have a management team which after 20 years is going sideways or down it is time for a change.

    Advice to Management

    See above.

    I worked at LynuxWorks full-time

    Pros

    A good group of internal people with very high level of skills who follow out of need for employment.

    Cons

    Executive management skills are not executive skills and reflected in business decline. Integrity is not a concern.

    Advice to Management

    Resignation is the only correct path, but then there are those internal employees who are dependent on their situation.


  7. "A decent company to work for management forfeited unused PTO in an attempt to avoid layoffs (wasn't successful)"

    Pros

    location, coworkers, management, understanding of personal life vs work life, challenging work, cross training

    Cons

    not enough engineers to get the amount of work assigned done on time without working ridiculous hours
    it's been years since they gave pay raises

    Advice to Management

    more diversity in your products/markets, you rely to heavily on one market (military)

    embedded hardware that is more than commodity PC and some employees that still know what they do and some users that still know what they want and some people that still value rational reason

    Advice to Management

    look around
