    Fruitful experience

    Staff Firmware Engineer (Current Employee) Milpitas, CA

    ProsCash rich! Good company and work culture. You would learn lot of new tools/softwares which are used to ease up the product development process. On personal level, company arranges different kind of activities (outside work) for its employees.

    ConsThe benefit package is standard which other bay area companies also give. Being a cash rich company, it can do better in compensating Employees.

    No sick days
