    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee  in  Woburn, MA

    I have been working at Skyworks Solutions full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Leadership is top notch and hire only the most qualified people. Most of the employees are honest, hardworking individuals who are paid well for the work they do.

    Cons

    They have quietly made a name for themselves in the industry. So it is hard to advance because of the talent pool of interested candidates.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    When looking to fill positions, please don't overlook people you already employ

    Pros

    Great stock options, lot of future for the company, managers do very well.

    Cons

    Low salaries for non-managers. In Woburn average age is 55, it seems that promotions are given to Manager's friends.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire the best people because of their skills not because they are your friends. Perks are good, keep it up!

    Fab tech 4 comes with a stress package. Those that give this place 5 stars are probably upper corporate head.

    I have been working at Skyworks Solutions full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    a lot of nice people to work with, tools tech and engineers are as stress out as operators but they're willing to help you fix an error before you make a mistake and lose your job over scrap lot.

    Cons

    operators are responsible to learn every tool available to ensure job security and learn both Bi-Fet and pHEMT. Their way of motivating to get a product out is " getting blasted" .

    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.
