So-so

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
Santa Clara, CA

I have been working at OmniVision Technologies

ProsMany projects to do. You will not be bored. Salary is in-line with industry. Company is fairly generous with bonuses and stock grants for a publicly-traded firm.

ConsProjects poorly planned so regularly miss schedule. They will often try to salvage things by throwing more engineers at the job but the result will be 50-50.

Advice to Senior ManagementCould use less bureaucracy and paranoia about employees stealing from you.

mid-size that functions like a start-up

Prosflat structure allows for rich environment for learning, constant exposure to higher-ups, flexible lunch hours and schedules, great benefits

Consoverly frugal, office politics, management doesn't really work together, have to work ridiculously hard to get noticed, large % of workforce is from China, some language-barrier issues, low-balling with compensation

Advice to Senior Managementwork together! :)

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
