    Pros

    Good work environment that challenges you technically and provides opportunities to grow. Because of its size, their is good visibility.

    Cons

    Infrastructure is not uptodate and sometimes appears being penny wise but pound foolish.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work !

    Pros

    Great place to jump start your career, great experience and feedback

    Cons

    No role clarity, management not always on the same page,

    Advice to Management

    There is a huge age gap with employees. Average age maybe 50 or so? Hiring on young professionals to learn and grow with the company would be beneficial.

    I worked at Microsemi full-time

    Pros

    Great benefits, nice work environment, and management pays for performance. The workload was challenging and interesting and I felt appreciated by my boss.

    Cons

    During the acquisition of my previous company into Microsemi, they didn't give us the bonus that we were entitled to when we worked for the previous company.

    Advice to Management

    Listen more to employees and treat all the divisions equally. This would improve moral and provide more of a team spirit.

    Business unit management very people friendly - most people are from companies Microsemi acquired and stick around with the company even after long time after acquisition
