Stagnant Stock price and people see it for the sweat shop it is.

Test Manager (Current Employee)
Milpitas, CA

ProsGet to work with some smart people.

ConsAnnual reviews focus more on negatives than positive. Max 5% raises, even during good times. Meager stock awards. A "Cover your ass" mentality. Lots of cussing and unprofessionalism from management. Design is king, all other depts are step children and abused. Some engineers are buddy buddy with their boss and able to slack off, you end up having to pick up the slack. Very little chance for career growth. No training provided. VERY HARD to get needed equipment (it took 2 years to get adequate chairs on test floor, people used to stand at terminals).

Advice to Senior ManagementLighten up and loosen the purse strings. Be more supportive of employees and treat them fairly.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
