Our senior director of timing products weighs in on how 5G is changing the game, in this article from Electronic Component News:
Our 1,200 employees around the world contribute to a culture that appreciates innovation, recognizes excellence, and is driven by relentless curiosity and a passion for exceeding expectations. Our commitment to people and innovation is reflected in our reputation within the industry, having won GSA’s “Most Respected Public Semiconductor Company” award three out of the last four years.
We are Innovative
When we say “we hire, foster and empower great talent,” we mean it. Our team consists of the smartest, most innovative people in the world. The proof is in the patents! In 2015, we had 100 newly issued patents and we expect even more in 2016.

We showcase our employees’ accomplishments at a yearly Tech Symposium and global events such as Embedded World and CES.

We are Active
We like to get physical! Our offices have on-site gyms and we offer wellness classes including boot camp, kettle bell and yoga and we even host recurring paddle-boarding events on Lady Bird Lake. With employee-led soccer, squash, tennis, running, ping pong and cycling clubs, there’s something for everyone!
We are Philanthropic
Every year, Silicon Labs donates 1% of profits to charities in communities where we operate. We make it easy for employees to give back to the communities in which they live. Our corporate match and volunteer programs allow employees to contribute to their favorite charities.
We are Social
Being the leader in energy-friendly solutions for a smarter, more connected world starts with connecting our employees. We hold quarterly worldwide meetings to connect with our employees across the globe. We also enjoy spending time together outside of the office at holiday parties and team happy hours (complete with karaoke). We even have a company band led by our very own CFO! Whether it’s competing in our annual Big Wheels Race, playing a little ping pong, or discussing the latest book club reading, we are a true example of how you really can have fun at work.

No cons that I can think of!
I applied through college or university. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Silicon Labs (New York, NY).
Met Silicon Labs representatives at a career fair at my university. Had a technical chat with an applications engineer and after talking for about 10-15 minutes, he said that I should expect a call within a couple of months. The representative was very professional and friendly. Roughly 3 months later, I got an email from them asking me to schedule for a telephonic interview. A couple of weeks later I had an hour long interview with an engineering hiring manager. He started with behavioral questions and then continued to ask questions about projects on my resume. Then, he tested me a bit on RF basics. The questions were fairly straightforward. Overall, the interviewer was very professional and seemed to be more interested in the methodology of how I got the answers than the answers themselves (which I consider a sign of a good company culture).
