    Pros

    Great coworkers at the ground level. Staff from design to operations work together to solve problems. Business units functioned very well during hey days.

    Cons

    Politics in upper level management and ego at play ruined a lot of great opportunities. The strategy for this company was to present specification updates based on chipset tech advancement. However one can only lead the pack for so long when HDMI becomes a commodity.

    Advice to Management

    None. Silicon Image was acquired by Lattice Semi. Hopefully they will know what to do with the remaining IP.
