I have been working at PMC-Sierra full-time (more than 10 years)

Pros

Lots of great people. Projects are interesting and cover wireline, optics and RF. The group has a reasonable size to allow sharing of expertise. Very technical.

Cons

Company and industry are struggling. There has not been much growth in the past 10 years. As the process nodes are getting smaller and more expensive the design opportunity are fewer.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

More training and industry exposure for designers.
