    Pros

    Executives are working hard on steering the company towards success and they are at least trying to get all the employees involved. Diversified into multiple technologies: HDMI, MHL, Wireless HD, and Wireless audio

    Top heavy in some areas Focal review process has no effect Technical promotion ladder doesn't really exist

    Advice to Management

    Streamline and reduce management hierarchy Equalize the technical promotion ladder vs. management ladder

    Design contribution into HDMI , MHL Standards is SUPER!

    Somehow no enthusiasm and happyness seen in employees, as it goes for GOOGLE employees. I would like to get some innovation that no other companies do. God Bless Silicon image! It gives us the "bread"!

    Advice to Management

    Bring Silicon Image to #1 leading company in semiconductor field... :-)

    Pros

    The direction, it has taken after Mr. Martino it has taken a positive direction. His management style is very good. As long as he is there, one can expect company will be doing good.

    Cons

    Employee training does not have high priority and employee herself/himself needs to do this on their own.

    Advice to Management

    Employee's evaluation system improvement will increase employees' productivity.

    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 Management

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

    Pros

    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.

    Cons

    Heavy Workload. A little low salary.
