Being an executive in the microchip industry is not something I would want to be. When everything is fine, things are good... when things get rough, you are history.

trotter, you got that right...just hope you exercised your stock options before you get flushed like a **** down the toilet lol
and yeah, executives are really worthless to a certain degree. as far as business is concerned.
