  • Laid back environment - mostly older folk

    Former Intern - Anonymous Intern
    Former Intern - Anonymous Intern

    I worked at PMC-Sierra as an intern

    Pros

    Work/life balance is flexible. Some company events take place to keep moral up. Pay is slightly below average, but still competitive. Not much bureaucracy.

    Cons

    Mostly older folk - not many new graduates. Seemed like most interns do not get offered a full-time position afterwords since the company decides new openings later on.

    Advice to Management

    Try to offer internships only if there's a high chance of a full-time position later on.
