    I worked at Silicon Image as an intern for less than a year

    Pros

    Flexible working schedule. Technologies are really cool and promising. Everyone here is so friendly and helpful. You can get help from anyone and anytime.

    Cons

    Tasks not so challenging. It's a fun place for interns. You'll learn something, but not so much.

    Pros

    Decent culture, reasonably well paying. HR seems to be improving these days.

    Cons

    Mid level management used to be better 5 years ago, and the management has been becoming more Asian over time, which changes the strategy to be short term, and work culture to be workaholic.

    I have been working at Silicon Image full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Very good cooperation among peer individual contributors.
    Pay and benefits are good for this size company.

    Cons

    The medium-term and long-term mission is very confused: in product plans and technology roadmaps, the company has lost its way. Senior management does not convince the working people that there is a cohesive plan. Resources are used in non-profitable areas, without a plan to make them profitable,

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Return to the company's roots, with great technology implementations, even if it's not in high-volume, commodity products. Stop betting on contradictory product plans. Reorganize senior management toward more decisive choices, and move the focus from "this quarter" to "the next 5 years".

    I have been working at Silicon Image full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Lots of opportunity to make an impact on the products and the culture. There is some bureaucracy, especially in finance, but much more positive than negative aspects to this company. Recent improvements, like Unlimited PTO are great.

    Cons

    Too many layers of approval for some relatively simple tasks (ie. Purchasing)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pare down the need to have everyone approve everything - act more like a start up than a behemouth.
