    Working at Lattice had many of the challenges and hurdles of working at a start-up without the risk of the rewards.

    I worked at Lattice Semiconductor full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    The technical work was very interesting. I had opportunities to work in IC design and verification, I contributed to projects for the Apps group and worked closely with the software and hardware validation teams.
    You definitely get a feeling of ownership for the project.

    Cons

    During my six years at there they had five different CEOs. Since then they've had the same CEO for three years, but still have a high turnover rate for senior managers.

    Pros

    Great engineers work at Lattice and they are very dedicated.

    Cons

    The company could be more successful by investing in their people. They need a more engaging leadership team that focuses on making their employees successful, not just themselves.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Your professional success is due to your people, show them that you value them.

    I worked at Lattice Semiconductor full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Field technical people are some of the best in the world, especially in the European theater. The people that directly support that effort are all fun to work with and have top notch credentials to do so.

    Cons

    Darrin Billerbreck (new CEO) is under direction of a mostly Intel schooled board to move all support services (even technical) offshore. Shrinking the company to 1/3 its former size. No one is safe from such cuts. Those remaining spend a lot of time helping replacements function.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Find a way to keep morale from going any lower. Someone has to point out "The emperor has no clothes on" to the business community.

    I worked at Lattice Semiconductor full-time

    Pros

    Lots of good people who really want to see the company succeed. The current products themselves are well positioned in a market niche, and the competition isn't really there.

    Cons

    There has been a lot of turnover in executive management, and it has become a company where execs bring in friends from the outside as opposed to promoting from within. The company has a whole has a difficult time taking an honest look at its products, practices and sales.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Look to promote from within before bringing in "friends" from outside the company.

    I have been working at Lattice Semiconductor full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Lattice has a pretty conducive work environment. People are very friendly overall. Good facilities. Start up environment so a lot of exposure to a variet of operations.

    Cons

    Too easy paced and lack of direction sometimes. It is very schedule driven so generally between time and quality, the latter is compromised.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Engineers should be paid more, they are the backbone of the company.

    I have been working at Lattice Semiconductor full-time

    Pros

    Nice facilities, decent work/life balance compared to other tech companies, good pay and benefits, relative lack of bureaucracy, quick decision making. Lots of smart people at all levels of the company.

    Cons

    Turnover in executive management over past 5 years, the current team has lots of ex-Intel execs who seem dismissive of employees with non-Intel backgrounds. The hackneyed stories that pass as motivational tools at all employee meetings. Career opportunities somewhat limited due to size of the company.
