    I have been working at Open-Silicon full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    The company is very good for fresher as it provides a very good learning curve for them. Also the managers are very knowledgeable and super helpful.

    Cons

    I feel that salary is not in par with the market. Also heard from seniors that there is not much growth for them.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Probably there should be more work life balance.

    Pros

    Lot more opportunities to learn. Get a chance to work on RTL to GDSII, and get a chance to work with customers directly.

    Lot more politics too. You have to really keep proving again and again, and too many folks to snub you.
