    I have been working at Lattice Semiconductor full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Innovation, success driven, profitable. Leading edge, small company environment where a engineer can ware many hats and have an impact on the bottom line.

    Cons

    Multi-site barriers exist, with strange angles of structure, where the knowledge base can be thin. Focus on key objectives can be under whelming.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Go where X and A do not exist, innovate. Create the Start Up small group approach, and empower to succeed.

    I have been working at Lattice Semiconductor full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Very transperent management. There is energy at this place, no overheads in the team. Priorities are clear and everyone in the team counts.

    Cons

    Company does not always work on cutting edge technologies. Budgets are closely monitored to avoid any overheads, making it tight on resources sometimes.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Tries to be as transperent as possible

    Lattice Semiconductor, 'more of the best'

    I have been working at Lattice Semiconductor

    Pros

    Compensation is competitive (even though benefits are sub-par), business outlook is improving with new FPGA product mix as older PLD products are phased out, FPGA market as a whole is relatively robust and growing even if Lattice has a tiny slice of a huge pie.

    Cons

    We need to find a permanent CEO to replace the interim CEO, asap. The company is just coming out a two year slump and several cycles of cost-cutting and consolidation. There's not much fat left to cut.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    More focus and investment on sales and marketing. Maintain commitment to new product development.

    Lattice poised for growth

    Current Employee - Director in Hillsboro, OR

    I have been working at Lattice Semiconductor

    Pros

    Lots of upside for new products and an increasingly high profile blue chip customer base. Lattices's proprietary embedded flash CMOS process developed with foundry partner Fujitsu is not available to competitors and represents a major barrier of entry for them. Lattice will continue to optimize product development around this process down to 65nm and 45nm nodes.

    Cons

    There is relatively high risk at Lattice given its financial resources and market share in comparison to its larger competitors Xilinx and Altera. Currently, the company is operating at around the breakeven point but will continue to have strong cash flows from its prepaid wafer agreement with Fujitsu

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Lattice needs to continue to increase resource deployment in differentiated products where they have a clear technological advantage over their competitors
