    I have been working at Standard Microsystems

    Pros

    It is a relaxed place to work, Convenient lacation and fun place. Nice and friendly people. Small and profitable company.

    Cons

    Not much new technology. Not much competetion , so that means not much renovation going on here. But it is good for ppl with a family.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get some new renovation in the line to do something exciting and new. Bring up the stock price and make bonus more atractive.

    I worked at Standard Microsystems full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    The work place is nice and the people are easy to get along with. The jobs are relatively stable. Some divisions have projected long-term growth.

    Cons

    The management did't hold the long-term view of the company. What they did was pumping up the stock price by buying small companies in the last few years. However, they rarely intended to integrate them.
    SMSC now is part of Microchip.

    I worked at Standard Microsystems

    Pros

    Over all the environment is relatively laid back and work pressure is not so bad. Being a mid size company one gets to work on different project that can be fun specially for an Engineer.

    Cons

    There is no growth in this company, and management have no clue what they are doing !! No matter how hard you work or how creative you are the work you do is never appreciated.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    My advice is there has to be a way to have a check and balance system between the employee and the managers. Managers are abusing the employees and employees work under the fear of loosing the job. How can one perform in such a lousy environment !
