I have been working at QLogic full-time (More than 5 years)
Salary and benefits are decent. Everyone in the same boat trying to survive and not be a victim of the next layoff. Some really smart, nice, hard working people. Has lots of potential.
Most of the smart, nice, hard working people have been stressed to the max by management. Work load extremely high. 60-80 hours a week pretty common. NO home life working in engineering groups. People are completely stressed. Shouting matches are common. Yelling, swearing at each other from offices and in the office area are common. Everyone too stressed out because of long work hours and poor planning driven by management. I've personally been told several times after saying there is too much work to handle "I don't care! Just get it done" This is common from management. They really don't care and just care about the deadlines. No empathy or appreciation of employees doing the work. Just work, work, work or get laid off next round seems to be the theme. Very short staffed for amount of worked needed to be done. Knowledgeable employees who get things done end up getting more work dumped on them from people who can't do the job. Workload can be very uneven in groups. Another example of the workaholic attitude of management. The team you are acquiring gets done with the old job at 10 -11 am and they are to report to the new job 20 miles away at 2 pm the same day. How do those people feel leaving their old company and friends and they need to report to work that same day a couple hours later. Can't have them not working for a couple hours. That's the M.O. here.
Advice to Management
Care about the employees. Don't treat them like robots you can work 24/7. Make an effort to reduce work hours or let people work from home once in a while so they can actually see family members.
