I worked at Microsemi

Pros

They had a ping pong table in the gym which was pretty solid. Oh and the free food they had at lunches sometimes. And drinks.

Cons

The company no longer exists. They had a poor environment. It was always depressing because people were getting laid off left right and centre.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Stop firing people. Its depressing. Pick a direction and go with it and go with the one thats going to make you money.

    Pros

    People are friendly.
    Atmosphere is generally good.
    Processes are good.
    Employer has a good health plan and goes above and beyond for people with health issues.

    Cons

    Most of the growth seems to be in India
    Management focus is divided between Mountain View and India and centers mostly on India
    Feels understaffed after the layoff with some voluntary turnover after the layoff.
    Okay for hardware, not a great place to work for software.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Need to get a better buy-in from employees to work with India because employees see it as nickel and dime cost cutting and not a good long term approach. Need better incentives to keep good software engineers because even though the economy is down, hiring for programmers has increased.

    Pros

    layoffs are over or so it seems

    Cons

    There is no room for growth as very few senior level people were let go during layoffs compared to beg-mid level engineers.
