Topics regarding layoffs at Emulex Corp.
Has a semblance of the of the 1000+ headcount pre-acquisition stayed intact? Any of the facilities still open? For sale signs on the Costa Mesa HQ campus?
Will our ethernet still be around or with they go with brcm solutions?
Business schools will soon case-study how a company with bright engineers were run to the ground by management of yes-men with subpar technical and no market awareness. Intellectual property left in the hand of remaining management is like handing... — read more
Several positions in Costa were offered to appease some execs. Will be cleaned up when the execs themselves are chucked.
Maybe Benck can find another company he can run into the ground and then sale it off at a discount then let it get Hock'd. Or, perhaps join Carly on the campaign trail. They seem to be a match made in Tech Hell. Hopefully Uncle Jeff chokes on his... — read more

Execs dumped a ton of money in Endace to make elx less attractive to head off institutional shareholder takeover. Shareholders outflanked execs and caught them with their pants down. Layoffs are the result. Enjoy.
Does anyone have more detail about 100 people let go this month?
Endace will solve all of our problems, - do not worry New Guy
Well, it seems the only safe bet in Emulex now is with Endace. They get their merit increase and were exempt from cuts and are expanding. Plus, it seems they are driving the direction of the company to focus more in the NIC space. Sounding more and... — read more
