Overall, a great place to work.

Engineer (Former Employee)

ProsGood management team, good salary and benefits, good corporate perks (like outings, awards, celebrations). Interesting hi-tech products that almost always are in demand.

ConsQuite a bit of restructuring has caused the shut down of some areas resulting in layoffs. The business decisions causing layoffs displaced a lot of excellent, qualified people.

Advice to Senior ManagementTry not to hire people that may need to be let go while they are still learning the ropes.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    Terrible place to work.

    Director of Marketing (Current Employee)
    San Jose, CA

    I have been working at Symmetricom


    Pros: Higher than average base salaries. Decent bonuses. Cons: Extremely political environment. Complete lack of trust between functional groups. Incompetent senior management, even more so after the CEO… Advice to Senior Management: End this culture of incessant meetings- get out on the road and visit… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend More
