Pros

Great set of engineers world wide, fast paced, dynamic environment. If you like all of that, and consider yourself to be a good engineer, then this is the place in the high tech industry. Things are getting better with some new leadership in key areas who exhibit a vision which is longer and more strategic

Cons

short project schedules = long hours

    I have been working at MaxLinear full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Small enough to be nimble and to have direct interactions with top mgmt. Jobs are broad and performance standards above average...if you are good at your area of speciality and willing to learn you will succeed here.
    This has the energy of a start up but the processes of a public company.

    Cons

    Have to come up to speed fast in order not to get left behind

    Pros

    Good if you want an H1-B visa. They seem to prefer foreign employees who have lower salary requirements.

    Cons

    Horrible culture, too many employees who cannot speak English (majority are foreign employees), long work hours. No work/life balance, lack of direction, horrible management. Top management does not encourage their employees to grow. If you do something positive, they only tell you how you didn't do good enough.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be nice to people. They are putting in the hours to make your company survive.
