I have been working at PMC-Sierra full-time for more than 3 years

Pros

PMC makes it extremely easy to connect with other employees at remote sites, and it really feels like working side by side, no matter where you are located
The engineer in the APPS groups are quite simply the best ones for that job

Cons

PMC does not build on its strengths
The higher the manager position, the more disconnected from projects' reality
Perks, benefits and salary not competitive ithin the industry

Advice to ManagementAdvice

PMC is missing a real feedback channel to higher management
Not much sense in trying to hire more/better people if you can't keep the ones you already have

Doesn't Recommend
Neutral Outlook
Approves of CEO
