    I have been working at PMC-Sierra full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    small high competency teams. strong development flow, good tools. not micromanaged. compensation competitive.

    Cons

    typical tight development schedules, not a lot of projects to choose from, but ones that are approved get good support. products related to storage have good business prospects.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    grow internal expertise to retain and build long term competencies.
