    I have been working at Microsemi full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Opened the door to my career field. Great opportunities.

    Cons

    No organic growth just through mergers and acquisitions. No planning of typical yearly occasions(bonus, stock, etc.). Executive gets payouts no matter how the company is doing. Looks two-faced when they tell the company that they did not meet their numbers yet still receive six-figured bonuses. No room for promotion.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try and bridge the gap between the executives and the rest of the company. It is okay to say hello to employees as they walk down the hallways.

    Neutral Outlook
    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    industry standard pay and benefit. challenge technical work.

    Cons

    sorry if you are not friend of upper management, you won't have any chance to be promoted. Just work like a dog, credit belongs to manager, and bad result you owns alone.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take a close look at the number of managers and layers in the organization.

    Doesn't Recommend
    Negative Outlook
    No opinion of CEO
