The Oregon facility is a great place to work

Process Engineer (Former Employee)
Portland, OR

I worked at TriQuint full-time for more than 10 years

ProsPlenty of great projects to work on, lots of "low hanging fruit" to harvest

ConsThey are going thru a merger with RFMD, perhaps because the technical management did not make every best decision just right. In that business ya might have to be right most of the time if you want to succeed. Tough business to be in.

Advice to Senior ManagementBest of luck with the merger

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

Good company stuck with poor top management

Design Engineer (Former Employee)
Hillsboro, OR

I worked at TriQuint full-time for more than 5 years

ProsThe design teams are good. Relaxed work atmosphere.

ConsPoor management oversight. No clear strategy to beat competitor either on performance or cost.

Advice to Senior ManagementIf you don't want to lead then make room for someone who wants to.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

poor execution of business plan

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
Portland, OR

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

ProsVery flexible. Normally empowers employees.

ConsVery poor communication between departments.

Advice to Senior ManagementThe concept of "doing what it takes" for project execution should include staying with the plan. Waiting until the last minute to get something out the door is poor planning which will hurt in the long term.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

Great place to work

Engineering (Current Employee)
Hillsboro, OR

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

ProsGreat place to work, good people, good benefits, great location (OR that is)

ConsWeak management, performs poorly against competition, always playing catch up to the competition, too many managers with very little to do sucking up resources

Advice to Senior ManagementMore contributors, fewer managers

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

Lied too, years on job counted for nothing, first 10 years were happy.

Process Engineering Technician (Former Employee)
Hillsboro, OR

I worked at TriQuint full-time for more than 10 years

ProsGood employees, benefits are great and lower level management fun to work with.

ConsManagement is not real honest with lower level employees, they tell you what they think will make employees happy.

Advice to Senior Managementwhen you know employees are unhappy, don't tell them something to make them feel better, or make them think you are going to help them.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

Fab Operator

Fab Operator (Former Employee)
Hillsboro, OR

I worked at TriQuint full-time for more than 8 years

ProsI liked working with the people and the days off. Sabbatical every 5 years and generous PTO.

ConsTraining wasn't the best and people weren't moved around to learn new things. They brought on too many new people and they weren't getting trained they way they should be. The benefits were getting expensive. When something needed to be fixed it didn't always get done right away.

Advice to Senior ManagementGet more awards for job well done. A lot of people did good things but weren't always getting recognized for it.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

Higher stock price but very little in return

Equipment Tech (Current Employee)
Hillsboro, OR

I have been working at TriQuint full-time for more than 8 years

Prosgood people very bright and those that have worked it appreciate the benefits. Good pay and vacation.

ConsNew management is all Intel folks and they don't seem to know the culture. And they don't know the technology at all, the operations director has only a high school diploma what's all that about!

Advice to Senior ManagementIt appears that their is a huge Intel buddy system and some of them are in positions with no formal education or knowledge of equipment or process. They brought in a new operations vice president that barely speaks English and they don't spend their resources on tool upgrades. The tools are outdated and the folks on the floor are getting almost no training. In the long run we need better tools and less scrap that is not being reported accurately to the investors.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
