    I have been working at PMC-Sierra full-time


    - small chip company: possible to learn many aspects of chip design in short span of time
    - focus on documentation increases opportunity for self-learning
    - reasonably collegial culture: people are friendly, back-stabbing or sabotage are rare


    - bureaucratic yet under-resourced, so central resources (IT, CAD) suffer substantially yet dictate policies far and wide
    - poor benefits
    - geography disbursed design community makes collaboration difficult
    - limited revenue growth potential
    - risk-adverse culture results in product losers
    - average/weak engineering talent
    - very political organizational structure
    - weak central CAD group

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Reduce management by half. Decentralize CAD so as to empower design groups to make their own decisions, allowing project priorities can align with product excellence rather than adherence to flows and methodologies of dubious value.
