    I have been working at Allegro MicroSystems full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Very good work environment and helpful colleagues. Being smaller design you get to handle entire chip and learn entire verification process. Very good experience for a beginner.

    Cons

    Technology is outdated and design is not very complex. Salary is not very competitive.

    Positive Outlook
    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at Allegro MicroSystems full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Decent pay, above average. Made some great friends there, most of them don’t work there any longer. The production floor really felt like a family.

    Cons

    Lay offs, specs constantly changing, no communication, sneaky/secretive management style, HR on board with lying about employees, nepotism, favoritism, big egos, disposable employees, work sent to Asia, unkept promises.

    Advice to Management

    When your most creative and competent employees get quiet, quit, or are forced out. You have a serious problem.
