    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.

    Good technology but requires intense support work; company culture is cold and unfriendly

    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 work culture, handsome salary. And great exposure to VLSI technologies, and gives you a very good learning curve in your career growth.

    Cons

    No cons as such. The company is still young, just 10 years. But that gives you that much freedom in terms of your growth.

    Pros

    Being a small company allows the employees to gain experience in many areas.

    Cons

    Huge amount of politics, little to no recognition or pay for your hard work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get rid of all the amateurish freeloaders , flatten the management structure.
