Good Place to work

Engineer (Former Employee)

I worked at Pixelworks

ProsVery smart and talented young generation of engineers. Most all development is here is Shanghai.

ConsInexperienced engineers are promoted very quickly. Talent circulation in and out of the company is too quick in Shanghai. Engineers who do not perform and/or who are not interested float around the company.

Advice to Senior ManagementThere is lot of potential for the company in the 3D tv market. Need to promote experienced and motivated individuals to managers and replace low performing candidates.

Offer limited options for the TV and monitor market and beef up support to help most… Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend More
