    Satisfactory Internship

    Engineer Intern (Former Employee) San Jose, CA

    Prosit's a small company, so you get close relationship with co-workers.

    ConsHowever it's sometimes lack of support from the others. They are sometimes too busy doing their own work, and many of the workers in failure analysis department are from China coming here for a short term training.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    I should not apply job here

    Electrical Engineer (Current Employee) San Jose, CA

    ProsGood stock performance, good basket indoor gym

    ConsHR is the worst, there is no communication inside of company. Maybe top level management feel all people working here are too expansive comparing with new graduate from secondary university from China. So better quit yourself, before they move headquarter to China.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Need more management strategy

    Applications Engineer (Former Employee) San Jose, CA

    ProsCompany has designed good products. has good device engineering and process for portable applications. good chance to win more markets if product definitions are allowed by applications and marketing. The design engineers are very good.

    ConsAs a engineer you will have to work hard to get a promotion. Designers are in charge of products and not many applications engineers are able to define new product lines. Some products take a long time to get to customers for sampling. They will not spend a lot of money on new equipment or CAD. lots of new engineers are hired in China

    Advice to Senior ManagementShould spend some money on new lab equipment and hire more junior applications engineers in US. promote good engineers to become managers or allow them to define new products

    erratic and unpredictable management

    ProsThey have an interesting process. You will learn what NOT to do.

    ConsMPS management is very erratic and unpredictable. Priorities change daily. They have no long term vision. This is a typical Chinese company when it comes to quality.

    Advice to Senior ManagementRecognize that there are good ideas besides your own. Start some strategic planing.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
