Strong technology, lack of leadership to define winning strategy

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
Sunnyvale, CA (US)

I have been working at MIPS Technologies full-time for more than a year

ProsMIPS has a legacy of very efficient RISC CPU architecture, with a business model of licensing IP cores or architecture licensing for further customization. The people at MIPS are intelligent, and with proper leadership and a well defined strategy this could be a much more rewarding place to work. Benefits are good, and perks such as bagels, fruit deliveries and Friday beer bust are nice.

ConsCompany needs to decide whether they are niche company or broad based. Integration into Imagination Technologies will help add resources and additional budget and hopefully improve accountability across the company

Advice to Senior ManagementGood luck to the new combined company!

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

ProsGood brand name, good history. Customers like MIPS architecture and want to be loyal to it.

ConsHorrible executive management team. Constant infighting. No one is responsible for anything - no accountability. CEO is in way over his head. Uncompetitive product line - doesn't meet need of customers but engineering, who defines products, doesn't listen to customers and, instead, tries to tell customers where they are wrong. No vision. No strategy. No goals.

Advice to Senior ManagementThey already sold the company. For new management, learn about the CPU market and issues and establish a vision and strategy before mouthing off.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

Great working environment, but weak management

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

I have been working at MIPS Technologies full-time

ProsGreat team players
No politics
Everyone works well together
Leading architecture for consumer electronics
Will be great company post acquisition (announced publicly)

ConsLack of vision and execution from CEO (addressed post acquisition)
Sometimes NIH attitude or adversity to change creeps into decisions

Advice to Senior ManagementExecute integration of the two companies well and make sure that our voice is heard in the new combined company.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

CEO loud without vision or IQ

Director of Marketing (Current Employee)
Sunnyvale, CA (US)

I have been working at MIPS Technologies full-time for more than 5 years

ProsMIPS has a great brand name and was a pioneer of the yesteryears.

ConsCEO has put together a crony team. His neighbors and friends. He is on holiday most of the time and brags about his parties and his vacations. Throws all the locations out. Also a name dropper. He has no vision and keeps talking about we have a soul.

Advice to Senior ManagementChange the CEO and fire the executive team and get someone hands-on in here.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
