      Good place to work, but....

      Pros

      Great benefits, unlimited vacation (once approved by management), very high salaries and bonuses and equity awards.

      Cons

      Once merged with Avago, our site was stripped of necessary office, lab and on-site IT support pushing many of those tasks onto engineering personnel. Work-life balance has diminished. Job content is not satisfying.

      Pros

      Work Life balance is good.

      Not spending on any research and company is trying to be more lean. Thus not much career progress.

      Pros

      The company offers awesome employee benefits once hired on directly. They have a great 401k plan, Employee stock options and Health Savings Account. Work life balance is pretty amazing. Lunches/breaks are paid.

      Cons

      The days are very long (12 hours.) Little upward mobility with out significantly furthering education (potential reimbursement for classes.) You're on your feet for most if not all of your shift.

      Pros

      Work on Hi tech stuff thats has no value or very less value in market. The companies that do this kind of work are also more or less the same. Example inphi macom lumentum etc. Stocks is only the thing you can back up on.

      Cons

      Poor Management , poor base compensation, no work life balance , everyone wants to be Manager here so he doesn’t work.
