    I worked at Telegent Systems USA full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Startup Environment and a small office

    Cons

    Worst Experience. Made you feel bad coming every day. Always gave negative feedback. Didn't know how to retain talent.

    Advice to Management

    Do

    Pros

    Friendly people.
    Catered lunch and dinner.

    Cons

    IPO was cancelled, which was the whole point of joining the company. Also, company was strangled to death because of the lack of product diversity, which the company should had compensated for given the price wars with cheap Chinese alternatives. Not enough done to adapt to competition and changes

  5. "Typical Valley startup with good technology, strong engineering, weak senior management."

    Pros

    Lots of great hard working minds committed to doing what they do best. They have two strong members in the executive team (operations and engineering heads)
    overall a good company with bright future if senior management makes the right decisions. I would recommend to work for.

    Cons

    weak management. Poor HR. facilitating departments are not treated the same way as the engineers. Most managers and Directors have no or little past experience and training some have experience as managers but no training. So if you are joining don't expect too much and you will be ok.

    Advice to Management

    focus on your people they are your greatest asset. Train your managers.

    Pros

    Growth company with opportunity to excel. Staff are recognized for achievements. Company is growing rapidly, and new opportunities arise frequently, offering staff the opportunity to gain good professional development and interesting work assignments.

    In the past year (August 2007 to August 2008), Telegent staffing has grown 50% and revenues are up by more than 100%, despite a "slow economy", due to thoughtful design of innovative products. This can be attributed to the positive environment the company has fostered, giving staff wide latitude in approaching their job objectives and goals.

    Cons

    Long hours are needed occasionally.

    Advice to Management

    Hire even faster.
