    I have been working at ViXS full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    The company specializes in advanced video processing technologies for Consumer Electronics, Pay TV, Infrastructure and Managed IP market. You can get update to date technology.

    Cons

    the company is customer orientated, somethings you may have high pressure because of time limit of customer requirement. Something you need to work overtime.

    Advice to Management

    The CEO has over 30 years of experience in leading an array of global public and private technology companies, from start-ups to multi-billion dollar businesses.

    I have been working at ViXS full-time

    Pros

    the old CEO is gone

    Cons

    they give us stock options instead of a raise. Stock price keeps dropping. Therefore no raise

    Advice to Management

    We need raises in Money, not in options !!

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

    Pros

    The colleagues are nice. Management of software team is very experience in both technical and management, encouraging and nice to work with. For the other teams, little chance to work with but they are all skillful and clever guys. I worked in HK branch before and have a few month in headquarter. Both places are peaceful and comfortable to work in. Although work loading will be crazy in peak season, but it is still considered to be balance through the year. It is a kind of enjoy to have such challenge sometimes.

    Cons

    The benefit and salary are not really competitive. However, it is not that bad at all. Honest speaking, it is an agreememnt between company and employees. Once you agree for that, you can bargain with your boss, but should not complain. Or you can choose to leave if you think you deserve more. One recommendation for you if you are considerring to work in ViXS. Don't choose it if you are looking for a job which can give you a chance to be a millionaire while just siting in office waiting for the stock price goes up. Choose it if you enjoy to work on the bleeding edge of technology with a large amount of clever and nice guys.

    Advice to Management

    I am not management guy so not much advice I can give. Just keep on the good work and always think what you can do for the employee in their point of view. It should be always truth.

    Pros

    Upper management made a lot of good decisions to bring the company to this level. I trust their ability to execute when the right opportunities come. Unfortunately there are not many in this space these days.

    Cons

    Morale is not as good as a couple years ago when the company was doing great. I believe it takes time to turn this around.

    Advice to Management

    Less micro-management. More trust on your employees.

    Pros

    The company has very friendly environment and flexible work hours. There are always new projects which provide engineers more challenges and opportunities of learning. It has supportive and discerning supervisors and lots of enthusiastic engineers. Hardworking is always rewarded here.

    Cons

    The company needs more featured products. It now manages to keep leading not only in techniques but also in marketing.

    Advice to Management

    The management needs to be more determined sometimes. Though brilliant ideas are always needed, sticking on selected projects and resisting from the temptation of easy success are also necessary. Otherwise, hardworking from engineers may not always bring good harvests.
