Featured Review

Current Intern - Software Engineer(Internship)

I have been working at Ambarella for less than a year

Pros

Manager & Mentor are pretty nice. Free Dinner!

Cons

So far so good (?)

Current Employee - Software Engineer

I have been working at Keysight Technologies full-time for more than 3 years

Pros

Most of the people I know have great work-life balances, our bosses have been nice and understanding, and everyone's friendly. Tons of smart people working on cutting-edge tech. Benefits are pretty... good. The NextGen group puts on fun events for younger/newer employees.

Cons

Salary isn't as high as most Bay Area tech companies. Santa Rosa is cheaper than most of Silicon Valley at least. The lax work environment for some teams, while contributing to the great work-life... balance, also lets less-motivated people just coast, doing the bare minimum and collecting their salaries.

Advice to Management

We've got a lot of smart engineers who are nearing retirement, and if salaries stay low, we won't attract and keep younger top talent. With the recent rhetoric about increasing margins, while that's... great for investors in the short to mid term, I'm guessing that takes increasing salaries off the table. I'd predict a brain drain and decline in about 10-20 years as the last of the old guard retires. You made a big deal about joining the S&P 500, but if you really want to be on the same level as those companies, you'll need to start offering similar compensation. $3-$5k a year in RSUs for software engineers just isn't in the same ballpark as top tech companies. You want to move towards being a software company, but the best software devs are expensive. Since software has higher margins, maybe the higher salaries would be worth it.
