    I have been working at Littelfuse full-time


    Littelfuse has been a breath of fresh air. Though the interview process was slightly long and could be viewed as strenuous, it was worth the wait. What I found to be the greatest pro to joining the company, is having an innovated team striving for success, yet be supportive and nurturing of the talents everyone brings to the table. If you are looking to be on the winning team and being motivated to be a self starter and get things done, this is the place for you.


    None that I can think of.
