    Incompetent Management

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee) Sunnyvale, CA

    ProsGetting salary without doing any work

    ConsFirst level managers are incompetent. They just say big words and dont have any knowledge.
    Employees are forced to leave as their salaries are not based on performance.

    Advice to Senior ManagementReplace first level and middle managers and hire from outside.
    Learn what is pay for performance.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Losing Its Way

    Manager (Current Employee)

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

    ConsThe 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 Senior ManagementReturn 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".

    Not good place to work for Digital Design Engineer

    ASIC Development Manager (Former Employee) Sunnyvale, CA

    Pros- Reasonable work hours
    - Not too bad compensation overall

    Cons- Middle management as well as senior management (related to my field) sucks big time as far technical decisions/review process are concerned
    - Compensation need to go with technical skill set (for technical positions)
    - Highly biased ethnically e.g stupid and in competant people but of same ethnicity at decision making positions
    - Upper management working just for their personal gains and not for company's

    Advice to Senior Management- Do complete overhauling of some of middle level management based on skill set and not based on ethnicity
    - Reward right people professionally as well as money wise if you want to see company grow

    Too much work, too many projects but not the compensation

    Manager (Current Employee) Sunnyvale, CA

    ProsJoin here if you don't have a personnel life.. its an exciting company working on leading edge protocols like HDMI, MHL etc..

    ConsConsumer electronics companies need to compete on penny basis and this puts lot on pressure on employees to meet the aggressive schedules with absolutely with no additional resources.
    You may end up working on Christams, Thanksgiving and even on Jan 1st...This is very routine for engineering staff..

    Advice to Senior ManagementPlease staff adequately

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Good Company but upper management sucks

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsGreat Working environment among engineers. Things get done.

    ConsUpper management only cares about their own career path. Direction is not transparent to employees. Back stabbing is a daily tasks for management level. No risk taking from upper management, only care about not making mistakes. Some upper management doesn't even have the "technical knowledge" to run the department

    Advice to Senior ManagementDon't listen to your direct reports, talk to the lower level management as well as employee to get a "feel" of the "real" culture

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Great working team, horrible management

    Engineer (Current Employee) Sunnyvale, CA

    ProsTalented engineers and a good working working environment. Information within local branch can be shared verbally and assistance is provided when dealing with difficult issues.

    ConsThis is company that has been plaqued by leading the race in new HDMI feature introduction rather than actual sustenance of product sales. Job responsibility is spread too wide. It is essentially a startup company in guise of a public one. Management is heavily dependent on execution rather than getting the job right. Upper management seems to think that IP is more valuable than employee contribution. Priorities and project management is a joke, all projects have deadlines within the same time period. Some departments have too many line level managers. Hardly any proposition for job improvement laterally or vertically.

    Advice to Senior ManagementValue your employees. Get a real Product Management and Marketing team.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    Advice to Senior ManagementProject defining process for future project is not good, and this causes unclear company future.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
