Sometimes chaotic, but lots of opportunities to do interesting work

Member of Technical Staff (Current Employee) San Jose, CA

Pros- engineers have vertical assignments. Responsible for all aspects of design from architecture, RTL entry, verification, schematics, layout, etc.
- lots of opportunities to do new things within your group
- technical leadership opportunities

Cons- too much planning on what to do vs. actually doing what needs to be done (make sense?)
- more competition than collaboration between groups and cross-functional teams
- too often the solution to a solve a technical problem is to call long meetings

Advice to Senior ManagementHelp engineers understand that they need to be responsible for their work

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
