    Pros

    If you are in the right group, there can be some very talented and hard working coworkers.

    Constant layoffs and departure of top talents. Workload is insane - a lot of long hours and priorities are constantly being changed with little notice.

    I have been working at Conexant Systems full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Excellent engineering talent. Very good learning capability and exposure to various aspects of the engineering flow in the product cycle. A fantastic place to learn a lot.

    Cons

    A very indecisive management that does not have a vision for the company. A very bad work environment and an extremely low morale due to multiple layoffs and constant uncertainty and complete lack of job security.

    Please focus on the company and its products.

    Pros

    Engineers are not micromanaged and are given opportunity to learn new stuff and implement new stuff. Extremely talented VLSI Engineering team and product applications team. You can do things you way while making sure that you can produce the product in right amount of time.

    Cons

    This is company slowly becoming top heavy with very less number of engineers. It is very easy to loose the talent but very difficult to hire the people back.
