Former Employee - Staff Engineer in Sunnyvale, CA
Former Employee - Staff Engineer in Sunnyvale, CA

I worked at Silicon Image full-time (more than 5 years)

Pros

Some very good and interesting new consumer electronics development opportunities. Good growth opportunities in high-end TV. HDMI, MHL are big wins. New management responsive to some problems.

Cons

The work can get repetitive and boring. Once you get a circuit to work you are the "Expert" and keep doing redesigns to port it to a new technology. Little chance for new innovation. Need to break into smartphones to be very successful.

    I worked at Silicon Image

    Pros

    - Reasonable work hours
    - Not too bad compensation overall

    Cons

    - Middle management as well as senior management (related to my field) sucks big time as far technical decisions/review process are concerned
    - Compensation need to go with technical skill set (for technical positions)
    - Highly biased ethnically e.g stupid and in competant people but of same ethnicity at decision making positions
    - Upper management working just for their personal gains and not for company's

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    - Do complete overhauling of some of middle level management based on skill set and not based on ethnicity
    - Reward right people professionally as well as money wise if you want to see company grow
