I worked at TriQuint full-time (More than 10 years)
Generous PTO. Very high tech products working with exotic materials. Active in Richardson Corporate Challenge. Nice building and location. Latest PC's. IT works well with employees having advanced computer skills and respond well to needs of workers with basic computer skills. Blue Cross Insurance. Casual dress code. Workout room with showers. Several long tern employees. As long as you do your job, they leave you alone. Several free classes offered throughout the year. ESPP.
Unless you have a masters degree or better the advancement opportunities are limited. Upper management preaches CPI (continuous process improvement); However; On the team level there's often a "if it ain't broke, don't fix it" mentality. If you know the term 'silo' then you'll understand how one or two key teams seem to dictate workflow. Legacy in-house software is pervasive and restrictive. They salaries at contributor level have to be supplemented with the 15% discount from the ESPP. Meaning that you have to max out the ESPP and then sell it to keep up with typical costs of living. MMIC Designers do their own layouts.
Advice to Management
Your high-level goals are not being promoted or followed up with conviction. Middle managers are protecting their status quo in order to bide their time to retirement. In the end, your good guidance gets diluted and resulting in business as usual on the contributor level. Perhaps establish a parallel career track to empower technical-level employes as well as the graduate professionals in order to maximize their talents in day to day performance. Something similar to the military's enlisted men and officers. Inflexible 'gatekeeper' departments are limiting TriQuint's earning potential. Designers & customers spend too much time appeasing your outdated working flows. So you might consider adding new, less-restrictive design flows that place more responsibility on the designers in order to challenge and free them. The expected result is designers focusing talents toward more innovative product designs.
