    Not much recognition. Satellite managements are too busy to playing politics that don't have time to give you true and honest review. Disappointing HR.

    Pros

    Very agile company. Effectively manages internal development while keeping pace with the rapidly changing industry and demanding customer schedules. Ability to make direct impact on business results. Employee reward programs are excellent. Equity programs are a huge +!

    Cons

    Company is in a transition from a smaller mid-sized company to a larger mid-sized global organization. Need org development to ensure silos do not develop and insufficient processes do not hamper growth.

    Keep valuing employees...they're what makes a great company

    I worked at Skyworks Solutions full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Learning high tech and and how to deal with stress.

    Cons

    The only thing the company cares about is the next quarterly report. The only motivation they can offer to a employee is the threat of losing their job.

    Former Employee - Principal Engineer
    Former Employee - Principal Engineer

    I worked at Skyworks Solutions full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Upper management cares about the company, the employees, values and responsibilities towards USA people, such as keeping employment in USA. It has great ethics, always on the look out to make the company successful, to find new business opportunities. Excellent money management skills, always having plenty of cash in the bank, always pushing to cut the cost, never waste money, always careful about capital equipment purchase and other overhead. They know how to run business and they are generous to share the wealth.

    Cons

    Sometimes there is too much politics in the satellite factories (I don't know about Woburn) and the upper management does not get to see the truth.
