    I have been working at Microsemi full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    - Stable work, Lots of places are contractor mills. Microsemi rewards contractors for hard work with actual temp to perm conversions. Unheard of in this day and age of 3 year contractor limits.

    Cons

    - Raises are merit based and unless you are ready to work hard and impress the heck out of every one, you are just going to get a cost of living increase.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work! Love the new Health care packages. Health workers are happy workers

    Interview

    hiring manager found me on linkedin, had a 30 min phone interview at lunch break, decided I am still too young for the role after I talked about my visa status and stuff just through the phone, overall very nice at least didn't keep me hanging waiting for the result
