Pros

I had a great boss and executive team. Everyone treated me with respect. I wasn't there very long, but I had opportunities to make a difference and learned new skills.

Cons

At the time I worked for Proxim, they were in quite a bit of financial trouble. I hope this is no longer the case. I really liked the people and it was hard to leave.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Please keep a watchful eye on the budget. I saw too much spending on outside vendors when there was sufficient staff to complete the tasks. I haven't been there in a few years, so maybe things have changed.

    Pros

    Interesting work, cutting edge technology

    Cons

    whipsawed by changing management with new rules, new petty requirements--eventually they brought in incompetent sales management and got rid of them--also no realism or planning it was just month to month

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    brought back alot of the people who were laid off or le- ore attentive they could have avoided the whole cycle--poor decisions on mid management

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee in Milpitas, CA (US)

    Pros

    There were some great people there, but to my knowledge, all the good ones have left for other wireless companies.

    Cons

    The company has no solid leadership, resulting in a complete lack of direction and focus. They treat employees horribly, and the moral there was the worst I've ever seen in a work environment.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pick a product direction/focus and stick with it. And invest in actually marketing those products.
