Very Challenging any dynamic environment

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
Sunnyvale, CA

ProsTeam work, challenging projects, lot of exciting things going on. Experiencing what's happening at the front of semiconductor technology and etc.

ConsAgain, challenging environment lead to high pressure at the work place. Lack of resources and need to face multiple customer un-reasonable requests all the time.

Advice to Senior ManagementTake care of the employees, who are the most worthy assets in the company. Focus and excel on the core products and do not invest in low tech and easy to enter sectors by what Wallstreet is talking about.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
