I worked at RFMD

Pros

RF Micro Devices is an easy place to work, in a low pressure environment. People tend to be very friendly and helpful. RFMD has good benefits, vacations, and a great health care plan.

Cons

As a company, RF Micro is slow moving and there are few prospects for growth.
It's a company that knows how to do one thing well - GaAs - but nothing else. Almost every other business that RFMD pursued ended in failure. It can't execute.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

For RFMD to survive, it needs new management at the top. There are way too many incompetent people at the top, and bad decisions get filtered down. Almost every recent acquisition has ended in failure. RF Micro is able to buy companies, but it cannot manage them.

    I have been working at RFMD

    Pros

    Work with some really competent engineers and very well equipped labs. You can enjoy a healthy work/life balance and the cost of living in Greensboro is low.

    Cons

    The company has lost its leadership position. Many business managers were good engineers but lack some business skills. The cellphone market has ups and downs which jerk the company around somewhat.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If you want a better future you should change how you do things - some new blood from successful semiconductor companies might help.
