Best place to work if you are looking for a great work / life balance

Design Engineer (Current Employee)

Pros- very collaborative atmosphere
- very helpful colleagues
- small community so your achievements are very quickly visible

Cons- Very flat org
- If you are looking to rocket to the top, sorry this is not the place
- 8 - 5 worker and extremely hard worker are both treated the same way when it comes to salary hikes or bonuses etc.
- There is no profit sharing concept so the money doesn't trickle down to engineers

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    I worked at Avago Technologies full-time for more than 5 years
