Lack of vision at the highest level is more than rampant. Our business units don't identify markets and approach them in a structured way... Instead, it is "what can we do to make a quick buck?" - everything is short term oriented.
What are you gonna do - we are simply is a huge collection of pieces that somehow manage to survive and continue to operate independently. Microsemi is known for it's messy integration ability - IT systems of the various divisions don't even talk to each other. So, external pressures, internal chaols, therefore you have this situation like today where dozens of people are bing laid off.
