    I worked at Silicon Image as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    Great managers and mentors in some teams. Hardworking, diligent, humble, and knowledgeable people. It is a fantastic place to learn hands on knowledge about the evolving technology. Given great opportunities to get involved in all aspects of design and verification. The things learned here are priceless!

    Cons

    Aside from the designated intern work, an unorganized, not well targeted corporate project was carried out. Which in essence involved no innovation whatsoever. Waste of time to collaborate with some people who are simply unenthusiastic and unprofessional about the subject matter and to take this project seriously.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Spare the interns more time to explore the depth and breadth of what they might do in the future. Instead of feeding us sweets all the time., what actually would be more valuable is the reality and hardship one should constantly keep contact with in order to stride firmly in the future.

    Pros

    Lots of opportunity to make an impact on the products and the culture. There is some bureaucracy, especially in finance, but much more positive than negative aspects to this company. Recent improvements, like Unlimited PTO are great.

    Cons

    Too many layers of approval for some relatively simple tasks (ie. Purchasing)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pare down the need to have everyone approve everything - act more like a start up than a behemouth.

    Pros

    The direction, it has taken after Mr. Martino it has taken a positive direction. His management style is very good. As long as he is there, one can expect company will be doing good.

    Cons

    Employee training does not have high priority and employee herself/himself needs to do this on their own.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Employee's evaluation system improvement will increase employees' productivity.

    Pros

    At least for me. I worked on many different technologies so I've been quite happy. This company has been best for my resume.

    Cons

    So far, not much in the way of career growth, though monetary compensation has been good. Some middle management appears to stifle communication.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Sensitivity training necessary for all managers, especially a few middle managers. Time is not so critical that only managers get to talk. Allow a few minutes for employees to communicate as well. This is not asking too much and will improve the overall understanding and performance.

    Pros

    Eine gut organisierte Firma mit guter Infrastruktur und qualifizierten Ingenieuren in Deutschland und in Sunnyvale. Gute Arbeit wurde mit Aktienanteilen (RSU) belohnt.

    A good organized company with a good infrastructure and skilled engineers in Germany and Sunnyvale. Good work was rewarded with RSUs.

    Cons

    Die Website wurde während der Krisen Ende 2009 geschlossen, was ein radikaler, aber notwendiger Schritt war. SIMG hat eine Menge Knowhow verloren, und dem Unternehmen fehlen jetzt Architekten…

    The site was closed during the crises at the end 2009 which was a radical but necessary move. SIMG lost lots of know how and the company is lacking architects now...

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hören Sie auf, nur auf kurzfristige Gewinne zu schauen. Investieren Sie mehr in Wissenschaft und Forschung, und lassen Sie die Ingenieure neue, revolutionäre Produkte erfinden.

    Stop looking only for short-time profit. Invest more in science and research and let the engineers inventing new edge-cutting products.
