Good if all you want is to get an engineering job

Design Engineer (Former Employee)
San Jose, CA

ProsThey are a relatively stable semi-conductor company which is good if all you want is just a job as an engineer. Work load is normal and not crazy and most people work from 9-10am to 6pm only.

ConsLack of promotion opportunities and a advancement system. They do not annually review whether you should be promoted or what you should do to be promoted. This is bad especially for younger people because you will be stuck in a junior position without much salary increase. You can push your managers but the company itself lacks a system. The best way is to just move on to another company.
