I have been working at GigOptix full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

Some people there are very knowledgeable and friendly

Cons

Management style is very poor: a lot of overtime work for free including weekends, frequent giving promises and subsequent breaking them, saving money on necessary things like equipment and spending money on frequent "work-related" travels of upper management; not respectful attitude to employees, including threatening, yelling, rude words.

    I worked at GigOptix

    Pros

    There are some interesting technologies here

    Cons

    Gigoptix is a terrible place to work. It's a culture of blame with the single goal of making money for Avi. They are overly careful about spending money and lack simple perks like coffee. They also are reluctant to purchase the neede test equipment. There is very little cooperation between employees and everyone tends to stick to themselves

    I worked at GigOptix as an intern (more than a year)

    Pros

    Work with a mentor, so if you need help you have a specific person to go to. Small company, but the environment isn't too stressful for the intern.

    Cons

    Must ask questions, they won't tell you anything if you don't ask. But, they do teach you the basic processes and how to use the system. If you want to know more, you must ask. This can be challenging, because there is a lot of things you might be interested to know but am not sure how or even specifically what to ask.
