Pros

- Some of the smartest folks in the semiconductor industry

- If you want to gets hands dirty with low level work like computer organization, processors, compilers and operating systems and advanced communication protocols like LTE/4G , this is a great place to start.

- Great benefits as interns and as full time employees.

- Learning curve is steep, mentor/manager system per intern , guidance and training is good.

- Company is doing well. Very positive outlook for the next couple of years.

Cons

- Large organization and hence has uneven distribution of good work

- Senior engineers tend to do most of the good work and interns complete the housekeeping stuff. Atleast it felt like that way.

- Software division slightly takes a backseat over hardware division. Pay and bonus is higher for design engineers.

- Too much work to kill your work-life balance
