    I worked at Aptina Imaging full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    High caliber talent, strong commitment to winning. Management style definitely allowed people to be empowered and do the right thing. Generally accessible and open management style.

    Cons

    Pockets of incompetence or non-performance tend to not be addressed. Relatively out of touch with the market in terms of pay and benefits, and generally unwilling to do what it takes to retain top management.

    Advice to Management

    Understand where the weaknesses are and who to listen to, and don't be afraid to cut where performance is not adequate.

    I have been working at Aptina Imaging full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Aptina has been great. The leadership team is transparent and they have made decent business decisions getting us to a profitable state. The work-life balance is good and the new Wellness program has me paying closer attention to my health. With the recent move to a new building there are healthier options and a new cafeteria. Aptina has been a great place to work.

    Cons

    Aptina was recently acquired. Aptina should have a gym and other amenities for the workforce.
