    I learned lots of hands-on experience from the internship, which is really valuable. Also, they have cutting-edge technologies. The engineers are really nice and friendly. If you have can-do attitude and want to learn something new, it's a good place.

    Heavy Workload. A little low salary.

    Former Intern - Anonymous Intern

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

    Pros

    Great managers and mentors in some teams. Hardworking, diligent, humble, and knowledgeable people. It is a fantastic place to learn hands on knowledge about the evolving technology. Given great opportunities to get involved in all aspects of design and verification. The things learned here are priceless!

    Cons

    Aside from the designated intern work, an unorganized, not well targeted corporate project was carried out. Which in essence involved no innovation whatsoever. Waste of time to collaborate with some people who are simply unenthusiastic and unprofessional about the subject matter and to take this project seriously.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Spare the interns more time to explore the depth and breadth of what they might do in the future. Instead of feeding us sweets all the time., what actually would be more valuable is the reality and hardship one should constantly keep contact with in order to stride firmly in the future.

    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.

    Losing Its Way

    • Comp & Benefits

    Current Employee - Manager
    Current Employee - Manager

    I have been working at Silicon Image full-time (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".
