    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at Overture Networks full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Lot of design challenges for FPGA design. Pushing the limits of parts and solving complicated design and timing issues.

    Cons

    Smaller company so not much room for growth. Some of the design work seems to be moving overseas. Big picture views for the future, but implementation and meeting customer needs in a timely manner doesn't happen enough.

    I have been working at Overture Networks full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    - Good work-life balance.
    - Timely update on company sale, revenue and company focus for future.
    - Good technology and tools to work for.
    - Time to time some technical presentations do happens which enhance your skill set.
    - Company vision is clear on SDN, NFV(Network virtualization) but products are not up to the mark which hindering revenue.

    Cons

    - Some leads spoiling the environment with politics in the office, they don't do any work except doing buttering to management so they are not accountable for any work but others have to show their work
    - Some leads only work in the night time, most of the mails only come from them in the night to show off their work to top management and unfortunately top management recognizes them.
    - Very less budget on employees facility.
    - Company policy is not uniform across employees.

    If you are passionate for your work and less on buttering then don't join Overture.

    Advice to Management

    Please take best action based on above review to make Overture best place to work for everyone, not to only some people.

    I worked at Overture Networks full-time

    Pros

    Some of the people. Very little else. As a restart-up, anything is possible.

    Cons

    It is the consummate borg culture. A place to do, but not a place to think. A company undertaking slow, painful attempt to re-invent itself.

    New management has converted org into a top heavy, do nothing
    Politics
    In survival mode
