    Profitable, no debt, duopoly and high margins.

    Limited market that may get replaced with different technology.

    Advice to Management

    If you layoff 100% of the staff, then you can reduce your operating expenses to almost zero.

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

    Pros

    I loved working on the enterprise-level products that we developed. I learned so much about servers, operating systems, network protocols, and test methodologies. It's a great place to work if you're interested in data centers or network infrastructure. I had so much exposure to every type of product that we had to offer and I'm very grateful for these opportunities. It was also a pleasure to work with everyone at QLogic before the acquisition by Cavium. If you ever get a chance to work here, you will get to work with a wide range of technologies. Highly recommended if this is your passion. Compensation & Benefits is industry and localized standard.

    Cons

    The technology was too mature and the company had little to no growth each year. The company was never going to survive on it's own and needed to be bought. Career opportunities were lacking because most departments were full or were being trimmed down.

    Advice to Management

    Too many executive and management level changes really hurt the company, but after all of that, it really just set us up for an acquisition.

    Pros

    Interesting products and great people to work with. QLogic owns the majority of Fibre Channel business for Host Bus Adapters.

    Cons

    Sometimes product deadlines are unrealistic and put undue pressure on employees.

    Advice to Management

    Set realistic product release dates.

    I worked at QLogic full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Overall, QLogic was a very good company to work for. While the revenue growth stalled in the last few years, it still was a very profitable company. One of the best attributes was the generally friendly and collaborative environment, especially among the long tenured employees.

    Cons

    In recent years, there was turnover at the senior executive level that resulted in some challenges focusing on the strategic direction of the company. There were some new executives that did not fit into the culture and didn't last too long. This resulted in a number of changes in strategic focus and restructuring activities.

    Advice to Management

    QLogic was acquired by Cavium in August 2016. A majority of the senior executives are gone and thus the management of Cavium must focus on the integration of the two companies and cultures.
