    Top notch design talent. Small design groups with complete ownership of the project from concept to production. Offices! It is so nice to be able to cut down on the hallway distractions.


    Engineering matrix favors analog engineers and does not match industry. Expect titles to be 1-2 lower than comprable companies. Small design teams means workload is high and lead opportunities go to prior leads

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Align titles to industry standards in order to recruit and retain talent.

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Silicon Laboratories.

    Interview Details

    Spoke to a representative at a campus career fair. Heard back via email two weeks later for a 45 minute on-campus interview. The interview was technical, mostly just the basics of C/Java. Got recommended further for a 30 minute phone interview. Here I was supposed code in a shared online document. It didn't work so we ended up just discussing my course work. After the phone interview I got invited for an on-site interview in the Boston office. The on-site interview consisted of a 30 minute tour of the company and 4 back to back 50 minute interviews. The interviews were pretty different in nature but the first three were technical. The last one was more laid back. Every person I met during the process was very professional easy to talk to.
