    Pros

    The people working at the company were great fun to be around. Unfortunately that's the extent of the good news.

    Cons

    The company relies on outdated tools, and procedures. Simple jobs that the tools would take care of at other companies would be slow drudging manual jobs here.

    Pros

    The technical work was very interesting. I had opportunities to work in IC design and verification, I contributed to projects for the Apps group and worked closely with the software and hardware validation teams.
    You definitely get a feeling of ownership for the project.

    Cons

    During my six years at there they had five different CEOs. Since then they've had the same CEO for three years, but still have a high turnover rate for senior managers.

    Pros

    Great engineers work at Lattice and they are very dedicated.

    Cons

    The company could be more successful by investing in their people. They need a more engaging leadership team that focuses on making their employees successful, not just themselves.

    Advice to Management

    Your professional success is due to your people, show them that you value them.

    Pros

    Innovation, success driven, profitable. Leading edge, small company environment where a engineer can ware many hats and have an impact on the bottom line.

    Cons

    Multi-site barriers exist, with strange angles of structure, where the knowledge base can be thin. Focus on key objectives can be under whelming.

    Advice to Management

    Go where X and A do not exist, innovate. Create the Start Up small group approach, and empower to succeed.

    Pros

    The benefits are good and the facilities are very well maintained.

    Cons

    There were many cliques. It was difficult to have a clear vision when the management structure changed at least twice per year. Human resources was downsized, then they brought in a new employee? Worked an excessive amount with very little recognition.

    Advice to Management

    Sending jobs offshore has had a detrimental effect on the ability to react quickly. The efficiency of the staff did not meet expectations. No opportunities for professional training due to workload.

    Pros

    There are some really great people that work for Lattice. It is a very tight community, and there are a lot of opportunities to learn and travel.

    Cons

    They have sent many jobs overseas. Management turnover is very high. It seemed like every quarter there were layoffs and it was very unstable and stressful. Darin (the CEO) had pretty much replaced every high level manager with someone else, many of whom he was buddies with from different companies. It really gave a message that it was more important who you were friends with versus how hard you worked. It's also not a great place to work as a female...
