    Pros

    Overall not a bad place to work, benefits are good.

    Cons

    Can be stressful at times. Management top heavy. Seems like a lot of the good talent eventually leaves. Some departments have no idea what "TEAM" means. This used to really be the place to work a few years ago

    Pros

    You get to work on interesting projects. Since it is FPGAs, there is less pressure than working on ASICs since you can always fix your mistakes.

    Cons

    Management is terrible and don't care about employees. They will claim to care and ask for feedback and do lots of surveys, but they will never do anything about it. It's all for show. Compensation used to be better, but due to massive growth of the company in recent years, stocks/bonuses/raises have all been cut. If you complain about it, they tell you that not everyone got that much at all, so just be glad you got something!

    Advice to Management

    Stop making false promises about caring about employees when your actions don't support your words. Instead of all talk, why don't you actually do something about it and treat employees better?

    They are continually on the run and very focus at staying competitive in the market. Good benefits, lunch program, good pay, senior management very approachable.

    Cons

    Work/life balance out of needs to improve for all departments. They are working on resolving issues and to being more considerate of life away from work.

    Advice to Management

    People are important and need to feel valued
