Let's face one true. PMC purchase Wintegar, Passive and also some other small company in recently years. Only Wintegar and Passive are cost more than 0.6 Billion. Both Wintegar and Passive product line are closed this year. It means the money is totally wasted. With such huge mistake, how can such CEO still be there?

PMC layoffs every two years as it is unable to win in present market conditions and poor quality of engineers.

PMC-Sierra's top level management is extremely stupid. No vision at all. Laying off for every two doesn't make sense.
