    I joined the company in March 2001, and now the senior director of algorithms team. With this information, many ViXS employees may know who I am.
    There are very different opinions about the company here in the glass door website, and I’m feeling very sad to see those bad ones. But I can understand some of them: He or she has been working very hard for the past a few years, but ViXS is not doing as great as expected yet.
    I think it’s normal that any company has ups and downs. But what shall we do? My suggestion is: follow your heart. For those of you who are unhappy, please let me quote from a friend of mine, who has also left, “I've made many friends for life here at ViXS”, maybe it’s a good time to move on and find a better opportunity, you have my best wishes. And for those of you who have faith in the company, keep up your spirits, ViXS depends on you.
    With the very successful HEVC decoder release and promising chips in the roadmap, I have confidence.


    There was a big layoff in Feb 2013, but the worst time has passed.

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took a weekinterviewed at ViXS.


    Internal referral to team director. Onsite directly for 1st interview. Just ask basic technical programming questions. 1-1 interviewing in a meeting room. Not related to the specific field questions like MPEG2 standard, driver experience, etc.
