    I have been working at Hittite Microwave full-time

    Pros

    Overall, great people. Most do not take themselves too seriously. Opportunity to work with multiple teams and departments. Inventing some very cool and cutting edge products (note: these are semiconductors [computer chips]). Free bagel Fridays!

    Cons

    While executive leadership is strong, middle management is weak. Some department heads hold knowledge like it is gold where other departments heads are more inclusive. EVERYONE punches a clock. Exec mindset is that working remotely isn't working.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get rid of dead wood faster. Hold middle management accountable for developing team. Allow more people to receive bonuses and stock.

    Application Details

    I applied through other source. The process took a dayinterviewed at Hittite Microwave in June 2009.

    Interview Details

    Was referred to this "prestigious" high achieving company by a former colleague. No particular position was discussed prior or during the on-site interview (which in hindsight should have alerted me). It was really an attempt to de-brief my knowledge of their COMP who I worked for. They never even offered to reimburse my (small) travel expense. Yankee ingenuity and frugality all wrapped up in one I guess.

In addition to amplifiers, frequency multipliers, mixers, modulators, switches, and other components, the company provides custom RF integrated circuits (ICs).
