    Good learning experience for me, but do your homework before joining, be realistic in what you hope to achieve there.

    I worked at NetLogic Microsystems

    Pros

    - Salary was decent for me, as was RSU component
    - Office building is nice
    - Project road map is solid, at least for the short term
    - Opportunity to gain experience

    Cons

    Many of the senior engineers from the RMI days have already left, or they have simply checked out, waiting for their RSU/options to vest. What remains is under experienced engineers and managements. Project management is largely ad hoc and there is very little (if any) technical leadership. The issue isn't talent, it is the undue stress on employees caused by short development cycles, poor management, ego's driving technical decisions, etc. One can spin this as being a company with a start up feel, but I see it as undue stress on employees.

    - Limited opportunities to move to management
    - Small (basically single person) team leading architecture of next generation chip.
    - 4 years vesting period of RSU (I am not sure what is average in the industry, but could be shorter)
    - No 401K matching

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire technical leaders to set direction. Methodologies evolve. You can't expect processes from years ago to apply to today's chips. Encourage engineers not to work in a bubble. Also, be more transparent, hold more meetings, show the employees that there is concrete plans moving forward to reduce some of their concerns.

    Pros

    Good communication within the team; opportunities to talk to upper management about concerns or suggestions; expansion of technical knowledge was encouraged; office building is nice

    Cons

    decisions were highly political some of the times; base compensation could be a little better; difficult to move upwards into senior positions.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It would be nice to see a little more of a 360 feedback for each of the employees on a regular basis
