    I worked at TriQuint full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    I've worked with awesome guys small team of systems analysis, supported other engineering and production teams. The guys I've worked with were very supported with family emergency and open to job training opportunities. When my dad was sick and was diagnose at severe stage of cancer, I had to be on call 24/7 for family emergency my working hours were allowed to be flexible. The best areas to work is Final Test and Engineering.

    Cons

    In an operator view, Fab production managements play too many politics games, is power trip and pick favoritism. They are not supportive and the people culture environment is to tense. They do not give the operators the empowerments and the flexibility to become more of a team player. They tend to over us COMMAND and CONTROL leadership styles.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Fab management leadership style "COMMAND and CONTROL" is the old legacy. They should give their operators the empowerment to work more freely and soon the output results you need will be at your dream.
    Fab management should learn the leadership style with Final Test management.

    I worked at TriQuint full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Great people, good tools, interesting work. An example of the caliber of folks working there: they have a 'gift of time off' policy and when one of my coworkers at another site missed a lot of work due to medical issues they were 'gifted' enough days off so they did not miss a day of pay in six months off.

    Cons

    Benefits keep slipping over time, not as stable a workplace as it was (layoffs to repackage the company for a 'merger').

    Pros

    Plenty of great projects to work on, lots of "low hanging fruit" to harvest

    Cons

    They are going thru a merger with RFMD, perhaps because the technical management did not make every best decision just right. In that business ya might have to be right most of the time if you want to succeed. Tough business to be in.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Best of luck with the merger
