Flex hours, great co-workers, company is too big.

ASIC Design Engineer (Current Employee)
Boise, ID

ProsFlex hours and great projects to work on if you have the will since no one wants to.

ConsCompany is too big. With a huge profit they still laid some folks. Less investment on the programs. Managers still have the fear culture of Mark Hurd. Mangers are not bold to make tough decisions. Do not questions upper mangers. They do same as usual.

Advice to Senior ManagementDo not make too much hierarchy of managers and individual contributors. Spend money on R&D and have proper and enough resources to get the job done right in the first place. Pay your employees market value. Have the higher managers connect with individual contributors not just a check on the list for 15 min talk. We are smarter than that.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
