    Pros

    Great people, fun environment, interesting and promising technology

    Cons

    Got side tracked from their main mission, and then didn't keep up with the US carriers' move to LTE.

    Advice to Management

    How could a company with $170 million in cash, no debt, and 850+ employees around the world when I started in late 2007, go belly-up and shut down virtually all US operations and lay-off 350-400 employees by early 2011 - it boggles the mind.

  3. An interesting experience of my career.
