    Hugh amount of bureaucracy, loads of upper management, rampant micro management, low compensation. offices were last updated in the late 80's.

    Former Employee - Engineering Manager in Columbus, NE

    I worked at Vishay Siliconix full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Some very talented people work there. Good 401K match. Financially solvent, and transparent about financials at the division level. Leverages it's big corporate systems across multiple business units.

    Cons

    Big corporation with micromanagement at the top. Hiring of new employees had to go to the highest level of the organization. Slow at integrating acquisitions, but when they did, they selected the least consequential, most frustrating policies first.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Push some of the decision-making to lower levels
