    I have been working at eSilicon part-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Free drinks. Cheap snacks. Everyone is really nice. Casual work environment. You can learn a lot as a lower level employee. Easy to get to-it's right off of the freeway.

    Cons

    Pay is a little lower than my last job. They also recently discontinued having free lunches on Fridays. Boooooooo!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep having the Friday lunches!

    Great talent/team but the-top has been getting too heavy for sound decision making and $spending....

    I worked at eSilicon full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Bright talented teams. The people and great collaborations were the core of the success we had over difficult projects and customer's dead lines. Really enjoyed and embraced the old corporate cultures, values and teams. Time-off policies are somewhat dependent on what project or which customer you are working on - my boss is good about making sure we get the deserved breaks.

    Cons

    -Heavy politics getting in the way...
    -Missing thought-out career advancement program to retain valuable employees.
    -Limited opportunities for advancement.
    -Training programs not exist.

    I have been working at eSilicon full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    - US style, no micro management.
    - Very experienced and talented experts to learn from.
    - You are respected by the seniors and experts.
    - Quite fun working place
    - So so pay
    - Good Benefits (telephone, ESPP, lunch, internet bill, good insurance, English classes, sport clubs)
    - Market driven

    Cons

    - Seems trying to flatten the benefit of people. Not very encouraging for out-standing individual performances
    - Not engaged to society.
    - Work/life balance is not very well provided.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    - Embrace more outstanding individuals (even junior one) , this would encourage others to try more for their recognition.

    I have been working at eSilicon full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Pays well. Mostly friendly people. Benefits were good, and if your spouse already has benefits, then you can take cash in lieu of medical/dental benefits which is very nice.

    Cons

    Don't be fooled by receiving many stock options. These are only good if they go public, and they have been trying to reach that point for 14 years.

    I worked at eSilicon full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    They do very good work on a technical level. Pay is actually OK.

    Cons

    Poisonous office culture. Works people to the bone. Cost cutting mentality. Out of touch executives.

    Plus, the industry is moving against them. As the number of startup semi's decreases, the pool of potential customers decrease.
