    I have been working at Apache Design

    Pros

    plenty of new enhancement requests

    Cons

    plenty of semi-senior r&d with the power to take product roadmap decisions without being open to constructive criticism as many groups lack a platform to have good technical discussion on new ideas.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Support technical discussion. Encourage and back good performers more.

    I worked at Apache Design

    Pros

    Apache has decent technology and some good developer. They respond to customers but mostly by a sqeaky wheel basis.

    Cons

    All decisions are top down. You better like being told what to do and when to do it. If you don't like a decision it is best not to disagree. There are very big egos running company and they expect you work around the clock even though employee have very little incentive to do it.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be more transparent and genuine. Many employees feel like it a white collar sweatshop.

    Pros

    Market leader in Power integrity so far.
    Knowledge sharing with other engineers

    Cons

    Long working hours.
    Turn over rate is high.
    75% of the engineers are in China/Inida.
    Do not expect pay raise.
    Do not make any mistakes, get yelled at is normal.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Instead of spending efforts on recruiting, try to keep experience engineers
    with fair market compensation.

    Pros

    Good engineering team with good quality work. Products are doing good. Team at Apache, Noida has potential and skills to produce amazing results but it badly needs a dedicated effective leader.

    Cons

    Apache, Noida operations are not managed properly. Lack of transparency & unclear accountability. Not enough employee benefits. Work culture is deteriorating with no liveliness & positive energy in the work environment.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Closely review Apache, Noida operations and how it is being run.
