    I worked at Jazz Semiconductor full-time

    Pros

    Close to the beach and Starbucks

    Cons

    Hostile, caddy, vying, political environment. If you are a new employee, the "old boys" will do all they can to demean, slander, downgrade, and belittle your status and your reputation. Very unproductive and hostile place to work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Said behavior should be addressed and discouraged, not ignored or encouraged for personal agenda.

    Environmemtal Compliance Specialist

    Former Employee - Environmemtal Compliance Specialist in Newport Beach, CA
    Former Employee - Environmemtal Compliance Specialist in Newport Beach, CA

    I worked at Jazz Semiconductor full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Nothing positive about the organization.

    Cons

    Lack of leadership, very disorganzied, micromanagement and old boy network. Quality dept. runs on water cooler rumours, nepotism and by hiding facts. Highly dysfunctional and unprofessional.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Establish structure and goals, encourage innovation, hold managers responsible, remove fear, encourage open, frank and truthful discussions. Perform Team Building, too much backbiting, nepotism and lack of accountability.

    It is a miracle the company is in existence in such a competetive market such as semiconductor manufacturing.

    Nice place to work although we've been running very lean

    I have been working at Jazz Semiconductor

    Pros

    Good people to work with. Close to the beach. Enjoy interacting with different people from operators to engineering to R&D. Pretty easy going.

    Cons

    Stressful now that we are running very lean with staffs. Too many issues but only 1 body to take care of stuff.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire more people to spread the work so you don't over work 1 person. Recognize who's working hard and appreciate their efforts.

    I worked at Jazz Semiconductor

    Pros

    Generous for an internship student. Learned a lot from using probe station and also help me to access CAD and analysis software which is definitely good for an student who is going to involve this industry.

    Cons

    not exactly big deal...but maybe someone will concern about the food court. Not so many convenient place to have lunch around company.
