    I have been working at SiRF Technology full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    This company has the best WiFi technology in the world. They have recent design wins and now begin shipping with the biggest carrier in North America by beating the big guys. There is a core group of engineers who are astonishing, positive and it's a privilege to be part of that.

    Cons

    Clearly the highest performing WiFi for HD Video throughout homes. But the product originally pushed was very costly and the SW was not ready.

    A long struggle that's not over to take great technology and turn it into good products.

    Management has pressed hard to only hire and retain the best engineers who have the right skill set, character and dedication. Most of the sour grapes folks and C players have been let go as you can see from the reviews of former employees.

    Management is sometimes frugal to the point of pain and loss of productivity.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Lighten up, pay folks better and invest in the future.

    Interview Details

    Hiring process was very good. They had done a thorough background study on my profile and it helped that work was in nearly the same what I was doing in previous company. Interview process was very informal. At the beginning itself, the interviewer put me at ease by starting with my strong technical points
