Pros

This fabless semi-conductor design house has many opportunities for engineers to learn the entire design flow and has a lot of very good engineers.

Cons

Recent changes in management combined with economic changes have forced SMSC to take advantage of lower cost geographies. Limited earnings potential.

Advice to Management

The CEO talks about rewarding individuals based on performance but has failed to do so. The HR department needs really improve their practices and empower managers to have better tools to help their people advance their careers. More transparency.

    Pros

    The people were like family. Looked forward working everyday.

    Cons

    Communication was a big problem. Even though I was promoted, there really wasn't any room for growth. The company was sold to Microchip Technology which, I was included in a lay-off which consisted of 95% of the company.

    Advice to Management

    New ideas and improved software programs are usually an asset to a company.
