    Current Employee - Lead Engineering Technician in Hauppauge, NY

    I have been working at Standard Microsystems full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Cutting edge technology with talented and good people. Great place to work as far as flexibility goes. Management willing to work with employees when it comes to personal life and work schedule.

    Cons

    Unstable and constant downsizing in New York. Employee's extremely insecure due to outsourcing and downsizing. Tough for employees to stay focused and engaged when they don't know if they will have a job quarter to quarter.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Due to instability, employees more worried about their job instead of just doing their job.

    Pros

    They occasionally hire. Hang out for some time while you find another place.

    management style is secretive, sporadic and increases uncertainties.

    Get some new blood to head up the business groups.

    I have been working at Standard Microsystems

    Pros

    Good people to work with and great management under Directors. No shortage of projects to work on and chips to tape-out.

    Cons

    Ridiculous project schedules. Very disorganized at times. Lack of vision from Senior management. Profit sharing takes place at VP level and above, so the people doing the real work get nothing.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Put on your visionary caps and develop projects the customers need down the road instead of responding to upgrade requests that may eventually get cancelled or not generate revenue. Also, stop spending so much money on mask sets.

    Pros

    Good diverse product base that will surely win markets across the globe. Management has started to communicate more freely with its employees.

    Cons

    Fear of outsourcing many engineering jobs to Asia. Keep piling on more jobs on people and not hiring in the US. Quality of life has gone down as need to increase hours to finish projects. Not a happy place to work anymore.
