    A very command and control, military style culture

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsSome of the people. Very little else. As a restart-up, anything is possible.

    ConsIt is the consummate borg culture. A place to do, but not a place to think. A company undertaking slow, painful attempt to re-invent itself.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Great product design challenges and talent, but not every plan ends in success

    Senior FPGA Design Engineer (Former Employee) Morrisville, NC (US)

    ProsThere are a number of talented individuals that are willing to share in their knowledge and experience. The different teams all work well together for the good of the products and company. The company provides great benefits including PTO, health, and 401k.

    ConsThe competition is tough in this area and a lot of the planning and budget decisions are based on high success rates. While the products are quite capable, not every contract can be won and there isn't much room for failure to produce revenue.

    Senior Product Manager

    Senior Product Manager (Former Employee)

    ProsOverture Networks is a consolidation of several companies, of which I only worked for Overture Networks. During my stay I enjoyed direct management, executive management and the work. Work was challenging but never over exhausted. The office culture was great. I wish Overture all the best for the future.

    ConsCompensation was the going rate, with cost of living raises. Training was never an issue. HSA was a great perk, especially if your healthy and I suppose even if you're not. I really didn't have allot of con's other then BoD and executive seemed out of touch with the market space and direction.

    Advice to Senior ManagementClose unprofitable lines and get back to profitability.

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

    A favorable experience

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsSmall company atmosphere, good people in Raleigh, engaged management, success in the market, large customer base both domestic and international

    ConsRequires ability to multitask and willingness to work overtime when deadlines approach.

    Advice to Senior ManagementAvoid common corporate mistakes which demotivate good employees. Demand high standards while respecting that which created past successes. Open communication is key.
