    I worked at Peregrine Semiconductor full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Intelligent, fun, down to earth employees, competitive compensation, matching 401k contributions, high exposure to upper management, donuts/bagels every Friday, free coffee.

    Cons

    Systems outdated and don't talk to one another, lack of IT resources, lots of micro-managing in this department and low morale, manager worked 60+ hour work weeks , expected same from her team and was constantly critical of her staff and other members of the organization. Upper management turned the cheek because of her work ethic and was a good "analyst" but unreasonable, robotic manager.

    Advice to Management

    Be aware of how lower level management is utilizing your analyst resources. Huge inefficiencies exist and can be much better utilized. Encourage them to receive feedback from all employees in their departments.

    Pros

    Hands on training, very competitive pay rates and the people are just great! The corporate culture is relaxed while there is a major feeling of being a part of a team. I took a peek at their benefits, very generous. I was only there for 5 days when I got another job offer closer to home. If not for the distance I would have stayed. The HR recruiter for Peregrine was wonderful and helpful.

    Cons

    no cons for me it was just to long of a drive.

    Advice to Management

    none
