    Former Employee - Engineer in Sunnyvale, CA

    I worked at PLX Technology full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Nice working environment. Although not a fancy office, at least myself felt comfortable. Free drink cheap vending machine and free snack is always a refresh when tired from work. Open door management made employees willing to speak out. Annual flexible time off is better than most of other silicon high tech companies.

    Cons

    So so salary for engineers compare with silicon valley average. Annual salary raise is minimum. Focal review is pretty much one way from supervisor. If employees have not so decent supervisor, your career growth is limited.

    Pros

    Activist investor board members could lead to profits for those employees who get stock options. If it's true that you learn from your mistakes, then the company is run by some darn smart people.

    Cons

    Job could be lost if the company is involved in merger, Many employees don't get options. Working conditions mostly are fine.
