    Fruitful experience

    Staff Firmware Engineer (Current Employee) Milpitas, CA

    ProsCash rich! Good company and work culture. You would learn lot of new tools/softwares which are used to ease up the product development process. On personal level, company arranges different kind of activities (outside work) for its employees.

    Good company

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsWhen I was there, the company was growing and clearly there was foresight into the markets and thus the direction the company was going to lead in.

    ConsNot necessarily a bad thing, but I needed to know some information about network design in order to architect things properly for my project and I was denied access to the information for "security reasons." It took some time going through the proper channels, but eventually was able to get enough of a view to complete my project. From a managerial point of view the policy was a good policy, but it cost a lot of time and money when it was a legitimate request.

    Advice to Senior ManagementKeep leading in the industry and value the team you have!
