Featured Review

Former Employee - Director of Global Accounts

I worked at PMC-Sierra full-time for more than 3 years

Pros

Access to leading edge Semiconductor products. Excellent Datacenter solutions.

Cons

Too much revenue with top customer can sometimes limit engagement with additional tier 2 and 3 customers.

Current Employee - Operations Manager

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

Pros

Well paying for the first 4 years with a 2 year sign on bonus and stock vests the following two years. Very rewarding job being given the keys to an entire building.

Cons

Very long hours, demanding leadership, and missed opportunities with family during the holiday season.
