I have been working at Semtech part-time (Less than a year)RecommendsPositive OutlookApproves of CEORecommendsPositive OutlookApproves of CEO
Excellent team/IT management. Hands on and very knowledgeable to the top. Cutting edge technology including NetApp/VMware, SCCM, and other network utilities. Allows for exposure to Linux, newer versions of Notes(v9/IBM), and so on. IT team is enterprise and works very well together. Very helpful and humble. No super stars. IT management is an excellent resource for any IT issues. I can't say enough.
A lot of the engineering apps are antiquated and need upgrades. As well as some of the lab equipment and associated hardware. Always "baby sitting" this environment. However, they are soon to upgrade.
Advice to Management
Keep it up. I have 25+ years IT experience, working many different management styles. This is by far a IT subordinates dream. We are not made to feel inadequate. They are quick to help to give you resources to grow. Never condescending and always positive. In my opinion this is the best model IT group all the way to the top I have ever worked with. I can't thank them enough. Other enterprise corporations can learn from these folks. Chemistry is excellent as well.
