    I have been working at Microsemi full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Flexibility allows good work/life balance

    Cons

    No stock incentive even for some senior level engineers. Compensation inconsistencies among groups

    Advice to Management

    Stop treating yourselves too differently compared to the rest of the employees. You are creating a group of demotivated people.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 weeks. I interviewed at Microsemi (Bend, OR).

    Interview

    The process was three interviews. The first was with a shift supervisor who also gave a brief tour of the facility and Fab. The second was with the Day shift supervisor. The third was with a higher manager. I think they oversaw the production line. Prepare for a long wait on hearing back from the company.

    Interview Questions

    • The majority of the questions were straight forward. Some pertained to the specific site location, but most were generic.   Answer Question
