    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 ManagementAdvice

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

    I worked at Silicon Image full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Some very good and interesting new consumer electronics development opportunities. Good growth opportunities in high-end TV. HDMI, MHL are big wins. New management responsive to some problems.

    Cons

    The work can get repetitive and boring. Once you get a circuit to work you are the "Expert" and keep doing redesigns to port it to a new technology. Little chance for new innovation. Need to break into smartphones to be very successful.

    Not good place to work for Digital Design Engineer

    Former Employee - ASIC Development Manager in Sunnyvale, CA
    Former Employee - ASIC Development Manager in Sunnyvale, CA

    I worked at Silicon Image

    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 ManagementAdvice

    - 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

    Pros

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

    Cons

    Consumer 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 ManagementAdvice

    Please staff adequately

    Design contribution into HDMI , MHL Standards is SUPER!

    Great working team, horrible management

    Current Employee - Engineer in Sunnyvale, CA
    Current Employee - Engineer in Sunnyvale, CA

    I have been working at Silicon Image

    Pros

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

    Cons

    This 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 ManagementAdvice

    Value your employees. Get a real Product Management and Marketing team.
