    Pros

    Netlist is a very good company due to its patent portfolio

    Cons

    This portfolio is not bringing revenue

    Advice to Management

    Go on the Yahoo message board and straighten out the basher's and liar's who are trying to subvert stockholders from buying and investing in Netlist.

    Pros

    Deep intellectual property portfolio and strong engineering team. Well-positioned with emerging technologies. Solid supplier relationships, capital base, and credit facilities. Very nimble with customer base. Dedicated and highly knowledgeable staff and management team. Excellent benefits and compensation package, and management is very supportive of its team members.

    Cons

    The floor plan could use some workspace that is more collaboration-friendly.

    Thank you for sharing your thoughts. As noted in earlier reviews, growth can impact space but fortunately it's temporary and solvable.

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

    Pros

    Some great employees and good engineers

    Cons

    But, perhaps only a handful good engineers and the rest, 80%, is very low in talent and only know how to be cheerleaders and point fingers.
    The good engineers have been let go due to "re-org".
     Always late on schedule and delivery. All trickles down from the weak management.
    Total compensation is below competitors who they try to beat. With stock price always around $1, you really got nothing from the stock options, except a decent lunch at nearby food truck.

    Advice to Management

    Top management is too busy with litigation and perhaps should just convert the company into a patent and licensing company and just cut the cost by cutting non-delivering R&D department. It will boost the stock price better.
    Top management also very kind for letting engineering failing to deliver again and again. A great place to work with this type of job security.

    I have been working at Netlist full-time

    Pros

    Experienced company that's focused on cutting edge technology vs the cookie cutter approach. Several major innovations in the past that others are current using. Upper management lets you know where they're coming from.... nothing hidden. Encourages travel to build lasting relationships. Sales is provided with the tools to be successful.

    Cons

    Engineering heavy that's used to a quiet environment...... Challenging for sales to keep voice down during sales calls.

    Great company with supportive management, focused on building great products and a safe & healthy environment; allows you to work with a flexible schedule

    Cons

    Hope in a close future the company will find a bigger office so everyone has more space in their office and cubicles

    I have been working at Netlist (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Salary is decent and benefits start w/in 30 days. Everyone is friendly & helpful when you ask. Product training is encouraged & provided as often as needed which is very helpful. Kitchen is always stocked w/snacks & coffee which is nice & not usual for most companies. Everyone is very busy but there is a general open door policy. Great product and partnerships. Lunch & learns are a nice way to learn & team build

    Cons

    Benefits are very expensive, the most I've ever paid for just myself. Office in general is very quiet, everyone is very busy but you almost feel as if you need to keep a very low voice. Not the best plan or direction in place which I knew when from the start so going thru some transitional pains trying to find the best path to success

    Advice to Management

    The CEO could be a little more interactive, it's a small company with lots of talented, smart and hard working people, acknowledge them occasionally.

    I have been working at Netlist full-time

    Pros

    In a time when many companies are cutting back, it's nice to be in a place where they keep the fridge stocked. Fresh season fruits, bagels and even a few frozen snacks. Recently my family experienced some personal issues and both HR and the CEO reached out to me. It is pretty rare for something like that to happen at a big company.

    Cons

    Coming from a fortune 500 company, it can be a little difficult to get used to working in a place where processes are not well defined.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to focus on building a strong team. Sometime less is more if you have the right people.
