I have been working at Standard Microsystems

Pros

Flexible work hours, laid back and friendly atmosphere, and steady amount of work make it a good place to work. The business is managed well from the top-down and has growth potential in certain areas.

Cons

Unfortunately, due to the laid back atmosphere innovation is somewhat low. The compensation package is barely competitive and thus talent retainment may become a challenge once the economy improves. Too much importance on reducing expenses. It maybe stifling innovation.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Ease up compensation now that you have better performance evaluation in place. Hold employees accountable to their goals and attract leading talent using compensation. Promote the strategic leadership program and announce some sort of bonus associated with the program.

    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 ManagementAdvice

    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.

    I worked at Standard Microsystems full-time (more than 10 years)

    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 ManagementAdvice

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