Invests in employees, management is listening to employees
People are sometimes not accountable for failures
I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at PMC-Sierra.
I first met with a senior engineer and we discussed projects and we had some technical discussion. I felt that this interviewer was merely trying to feel me out. Next, I got interviewed by three much younger engineers simultaneously. These guys asked me to explain LNA and PLL circuitry on the white board. I think it's safe to say they grilled me. Finally, the engineering manager interviewed me. He also grilled me a bit on PLLs and VGAs. The interview was challenging and highly productive.
