    Pros

    Good pay, some flexibility depending on what department you work for.

    Cons

    management too top heavy. Cannot count the number of VP's and Directors, seems unnecessary. Benefits could be better as well as vacation for long term employees.

    Advice to Management

    Less upper level managers - make every employee feel valued Have more morale boosting programs in place - good morale goes a long way

    Pros

    Starting pay is decent for the area, interesting work, nice co-workers, bi-annual bonuses based on overall company revenue.

    Cons

    Management does not communicate well, quantity over quality, no advancement, poor training program.

    Advice to Management

    Management needs to disseminate information better. Treat everyone equally, and not cater to special individuals unless you offer the same to other employees, regardless of relationship or friendliness.

    Large Company, bureaucracy. Lower than normal pay, having trouble retaining employees.

    Raise base pay. Currently underpaying all lower level employees by a good deal.

    I have been working at MACOM full-time

    Pros

    Workers have a desire to do the right thing. Generally friendly.

    Cons

    IT is almost fully outsourced. There is little support or proactive improvement of business systems. People are doing things manually, or simply because that is how they were told the system worked. There's no process to implement improvements and no one knowledgeable to make recommendations.

    Advice to Management

    Work on human resource development.
