    I worked at MoSys full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    The company is highly focused on a specific emerging market and carries no debt. People know what their job is and everyone is pulling together.

    Cons

    The company is bootstrapped. They can't do everything that they want to. Revenue ramp is slower than hoped for.

    Pros

    Very focused development team. Great patent portfolio and technology. Leadership is very stable and straightforward. Enjoyed working there.

    Cons

    Limited resources to develop a solutions for future customers. Need to understand customer technology/product road map and meet that future need.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to meet future customer needs. Partner with successful technology companies and use their resources to develop customer specific solutions. Not easy to do. Best to MoSys.

    I have been working at MoSys full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Leading edge technology, diverse team, freedom to share ideas and make decisions, enough flexibility to try new things combined with challenge of meeting financial and business goals. There is a lot of high-quality engineering talent. Management is extremely experienced. I trust the vision.

    Cons

    Taking longer than anticipated to turn around and reach vision. Not a lot of frills, perks or over-the-top benefits. Infrastructure boasts a lot of inefficiencies and many internal procedures are too manual.

    Advice to Management

    Communicate top-down vision more regularly with the team. Be more visible. Encourage camaraderie among team members which seems to be in small cliques and not a lot of overall company spirit. Everyone is working toward realizing your vision, but there seems to be little excitement among the team.
