    I worked at ANADIGICS full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    The company has been in layoff mode for the last 5 years or so, can't think of a good reason to work for them

    Cons

    The company has been in layoff mode for the last 5 years or so, can't think of a good reason to work for them

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't only think of your own golden parachute (it is so obvious to everyone in the company) and think of your employees

    Pros

    If the company goes under, at least the bathrooms will be clean. Cleaning staff cleans the bathrooms 50 times a day.

    Cons

    No ping pong balls for the ping pong table.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please get more ping pong balls.

    I worked at ANADIGICS full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Good employees working on the floor. Unfortunately they are not valued by management. I have no other pros to add which is sad.

    Cons

    Mediocrity promoted while performers are punished, too much politics, people in the wrong roles, decision making power is held hostage by executive management which is robbing talented employees from their pride of workmanship and resulting in alot of bad decisions.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Remove toxic managers and there are alot. You know who they are. Let the people run the company because you are all beyond your capabilities. Of course you have failed to become aware of that so it is probably too late.

  5. The perfect storm

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee

    I worked at ANADIGICS

    Pros

    Great people. Good team work. Lots of opportunities to learn.

    Cons

    Management has asked over the years that employees ride out the storm. Profitability will return, just need the next great product. Problem is they keep making the same mistakes and fall behind and once again late to market. Cancelling another failed program. At this point management scrambles to ensure the golden parachutes can be paid out. Using layoffs as cost savings. They have now created the perfect storm, there's no riding out this one.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If you say your returning to start up capacity you need to be honest with yourself. No start up has a management team this large. Stop promoting your buddies and filling your pockets. Too many big salaries and no one is producing a business plan to make this company survive.

    Pros

    Good atmosphere for learning the technology and making significant contributions. The people are good to work with.

    Cons

    Lack of ability to consistently design for profitability.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Career development of the employees is not high enough priority. When the company finances began getting worse, all performance reviews were cancelled and career growth became non-existent. Career growth could and should have been decoupled from the ability to offer bonuses or raises.

    Pros

    Great people and environment with the ability to have some flex time if needed. Use to have opportunity for growth but not some much anymore.

    Cons

    Management team struggling to get the company in a profitable state. Management team does not know how to turn the company around and at this point in the history of the company, there's a good chance they will go out of business. People are now leaving in droves.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Find a bail out plan quick!

    Pros

    A few talented managers who know their technical areas well

    Cons

    But these managers are trying to manage areas they don't know, and the BoD won't allow decisions that ultimately would allow the company to survive

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Close the doors now.

    I have been working at ANADIGICS full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Greatest and most knowledgeable coworkers.

    Cons

    Company will probably close soon. Extremely inflated upper management. After a 30% reduction in force, still have same number of VPs. Totally inverted company structure. Have more VPs than design engineers to develop products. Every day, you fear another layoff.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Show the street you are serious. Eliminate much of your upper management, VPs. Why do have a CTO as a VP with no one reporting to him? End the "buddy" crap.

    Pros

    Good people within the company. Tight groups, willing to train and teach others.

    Cons

    Totally hand cuffed by upper management. Directors think they know everything. They do not trust anyone to work without being micro - managed. Upper management team is only there to get golden parachutes and collect their shares. Took major salary adjustments when company hasn't been profitable in 5+ years. CEO is head of Board-conflict! Last 2 layoffs of over 180 employees...2 director, 1 manager, rest were the worker bees.

    Pros

    Pay was okay and challenging work environment. Can't think of any other pros. Good location with a ping pong table.

    Cons

    Very little room for growth. Constantly laying off people. Too many incompetent senior personnel that are lacking in adequate experience.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be more efficient.
