    Current Employee, more than 8 years

    No career growth and clueless upper management

    Aug 20, 2020 - Operator III in Breinigsville, PA
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    -No mandatory overtime -Workers set the work speed generally -Long breaks/many breaks

    Cons

    -No advancement (would rather hire from outside the company than promote within) -Direct management are glorified time keepers with no real power but still try to throw their weight around. - Upper management has no clue how the Fab is ran or how to run one and that has become more and more apparent as the years have passed -Upper management spreads rumors, outright lies during meetings and purposely turns shifts on one another creating a very hostile work environment -Absolutely no appreciation for workers other than small bonuses which are dangled in front of us and often forfeited due to, "the economy, the state of the semiconductor market, China tariffs, Covid19." There is always an excuse. -Raises have fallen drastically each year since this location was acquired by Broadcom, until finally no raises were given this year. This is rumored to be the norm with promises of "bigger bonuses."

    A successful and big company that thinks it is more flexible than it really is

    Feb 7, 2014 - Senior Manager in Santa Clara, CA
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    They have very talented people, a great core set of technologies and excellent relationship with customers.

    Cons

    They continue to think in terms of "silos" in terms of applications and features. Opportunities are being lost by not streamlining processes and combining separate chip lines into combos. As far as the work environment; most everyone is shielded from this view and continue to work on their projects happily without seeing the macroscopic forces that are changing the industry.
