Pros

Nice people to work with and the company deals with cutting edge research in semi conductors industry.

Cons

Bad communication of critical issues facing the company.
Not so optimal execution at PDF ..
Company is scattered in tons of offices ....
Management still thinks of PDF as the research start up they created in 1991.
Too much for a small company to have 12 executive positions (CEO,8 VPs,CAO,CSO,CT)

Advice to ManagementAdvice

PDF needs a really good reorganization and some offices consolidation

Doesn't Recommend
No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    Headquarter has good location and there are opportunities for many for travel.
    Co-workers are intelligent, interested in learning and solving problems, are customer-focused, and have lots of energy and good ideas.

    Cons

    Small group of inbred execs and senior engineers make moving up through the organization nearly impossible. There seems to be no succession planning nor opportunities for career development. Many managers give little if any performance feedback and don't work with you to further your career.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Bring more employees into the strategic planning and decision making process by inviting their ideas. Reward managers for sharing information with their employees in a timely way and pushing down decisions so people feel that they are a part of the organization's direction.
