    Pros

    I am studying communication theory at grad school, and their wifi system team is the best place to be. Engineers around are overall knowledgable and willing to teach you.

    Cons

    Pay is not so competitive, food is bad.

    Pros

    You get to work on advance technology in the mobile division.
    There are plenty of technical fellow-peer webinar training and tool training classes you can take if you can find time outside of your work to participate.
    Plenty of corporate simulation tools available.
    Excellent Help and IT support department.
    Very structured documentation process.

    Cons

    Company mobile phone technology is behind its competitor...always trailing.
    Some managers need training on soft skills, especially those the just moved up into management or moved in as a manager from a recent acquisition.
    Poor collaboration and communication between departments during chip development.
    No regular corporate vision casting down line.
    No vacation hour accumulation and no sabbatical.
    No team building activities. Employee can become individualistic when they are busy.
    Poor food quality at the Sunnyvale site.

    Advice to Management

    Improve on technology vision in the phone mobile space and its leadership team.
