I worked at Entropic Communications as a contractor for less than a year

Pros

I only contracted here for a few weeks, but really liked the company culture. People were friendly, willing to help. They brought in both lunch and dinner for us during the tape-out phase.

Cons

There was a lot of pressure due to the fact that the tape-out date was close.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

I had no working relationship with upper management so I really have no comments.

    Good compensation, good for the talented, but not good for those who seek personal growth

    I worked at Entropic Communications full-time

    Pros

    Generally good company benefits and compensation. Good if you like to work with hard and energetic workers; generally easy to get along with others. Company is willing to invest in tools that make sense for individuals and teams. Marketing/business is transparent with overall company strategy/direction.

    Cons

    Hiring is focus on specialized engineering talent rather than those who are technical leaders. This tends to be bad for team camaraderie. Teams/groups tend to work as vertical silos rather than together; sometimes there is an effort to coerce cross team function rather than natural cohesion. Perhaps this is due to the lack of clear business objectives to engineering tasks. This is not due to faulty communication rather than a lack of leadership/management that can effectively translate objectives.

    I have been working at Entropic Communications full-time

    Pros

    You work on leading edge technology and the work is very challenging. The products also have an impact on millions of people so it gives you a sense of accomplishment.

    Cons

    Lots of politics, not very rewarding unless you are working in the hardware group. Yes, it is a chip company, but other groups including SW also play a critical role in the success of the company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Acknowledge that all functional areas play a critical role in the success of the company.
