    I worked at QuickLogic full-time

    Pros

    Small company with start-up enthusiasm. The company has a close family feel, and you get to know everyone in the company. Co-workers are approachable across departments, and there isn't too much red tape to get things done.

    Cons

    Little to no training or structured knowledge transfer. The products are not what one would consider cutting edge. There is dissension within the ranks that the management may not be aware of.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay attention to career goals of employees, and how to facilitate growth.

    Pros

    * Many companies give lip service to the idea that 'we care about our employees' , but in QuickLogic's case, this is true.
    * Fast moving customers and markets
    * GREAT work-life balance opportunities
    * Good people

    Cons

    * Some resistance to change amongst employees
    * Smaller company = limited resources
    * Shift from older product focus to newer product focus hasn't happened quick enough

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep driving forward. You know better what is happening in the company than any management team I've ever had. Keep on that path!!!

    I worked at QuickLogic

    Pros

    Quicklogic generally has a friendly culture, decent pay and good benefits. Most positions have a good life balance.

    Cons

    The senior management is clueless, starting from the top down. Some very smart people, but you really need exceptional vision or exceptional technology to make it in semis and QL has neither. They are living off past products and a few limited market new ones. The Board has been a bit more assertive in recent years, but doesn't ever seem to ask the hard questions. It can be an OK place to work for a while but the company is not now on a stable path and turnover/layoffs happen fairly frequently.

    Work here if you can't find any other job and just need a transitional place.

    I worked at QuickLogic

    Pros

    The benefits are good. Pay is decent, though not that great.

    Cons

    The company is going down, it's just a matter of time. Morale is low, lots of politics.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to your staff. Look at their strengths and find ways to use them. Come up with a strategy/vision that is realistic and worth pursuing. Wake up to the facts!
