    I worked at Semtech full-time

    Pros

    Working alongside some of the brightest and most experienced people
    Excellent Work Environment - High Level of Professionalism
    Headquarter Facilities are top notch for company of this size
    Work-Life Balance Perks like lunchtime sports and after work events
    Subtle and positive CEO

    Cons

    Some software and tool sets are less than optimized
    Some divisions struggle to gain traction resulting in less than ideal resource allocation
    Change can sometimes seem to be for the worse without necessary context and lead to poor morale

    Advice to Management

    In general it would seem that more emphasis should be put on developing talent internally. Also for certain aspects of the business it might be more prudent to temporarily manage closer so that performance gaps can actually be addressed. I found a lot of frustration seeing heavily massaged power point slides miss their mark in exec reviews. There are opportunities everywhere if you choose to look - people want to help and do the right thing if you just let them.

    Interview

    I applied through university recruiting. Met with recruiter for interview on campus, then with manager on-site. Both interviews consisted both behavioral and technical questions pertaining to circuit design. Both recruiter and manager were very friendly and did not hesitate to clarify any questions asked
