    Positive Outlook

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

    Pros

    Good technology, growing sales and very, very smart people work there.

    Cons

    Salaries slightly below average, some upper management weakness in terms of keeping employees really focused on their jobs, and a surprising amount of bureaucracy for a company that had between 50-100 employees (grew from 50 to over 100 in last 3 years).

    Advice to Management

    Help technical staff focus more on their jobs and less on large management reviews.

    Pros

    The technology is new and exciting
    Co-workers are very nice like a family
    One of the two product lines has no competition
    Flexible working hours
    Most mid-level managers are very good

    Cons

    Salary is 20% ~50% lower than industry average (unless you know the right person).
    The management prefers to hire experienced rather than develop talents.
    No, little if any, career advancement/professional development
    Current new management is bringing in its crew. Politics is definitely apparent.
    Communication from group to group and from the management to the employees is abysmal and inaccurate
    Job description is inaccurate (borderline misleading).
    Some positions workload is unreasonable (i.e. system engineers, field, manufacturing). Expect to work overtime
    Very hectic environment with very little support.
    It employs sink or swim on the job training method
    Company is in transition phase from small to mid size (if it is not sold off before that happens).
    Do not value the contribution of employees.

    Advice to Management

    Start of with improving the communication.
