    I worked at OmniVision Technologies as a contractor for less than a year

    Pros

    Very fast pace environment. You will never be bored. This was a great experience in an interesting environment.

    Cons

    Culture is not very diverse. Contracted for nearly one year. They always seem to hire only contract for this position. Although it was a contract to hire position, the department manager has no control over the conversion and was not able to get my conversion approved by upper management.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Allow your managers to make their own decisions.

    I have been working at OmniVision Technologies full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Caters to one of the fastest growing semiconductor markets - image sensors. Would put my money on them to succeed in a highly competitive market because of their never say die attitude.

    Cons

    Employees not empowered to take decisions. Decisions often overridden without notice by management.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give people the flexibility and power to grow.

    I have been working at OmniVision Technologies

    Pros

    Many 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.

    Cons

    Projects 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 ManagementAdvice

    Could use less bureaucracy and paranoia about employees stealing from you.
