      I worked at Dcg Systems

      Pros

      One of the core values of this Company is Innovate and Invent; this Company walks the talk! An environment that allows engineering to think outside the box. Annual Technology Summit which gathers all technologists from around the world once per year to share and learn from each other. Patent Award rewards and recognition. If you are a technologist this is the place to be. An environment of intelligence, commitment...

      Cons

      Opportunity for career growth was limited due to company for some because the market for the company's products is limited.

      Advice to Management

      Israel Niv should do this again! Best ride in a 20+ year career. I think it may have been my Camelot!

      I worked at Dcg Systems full-time for more than 9 years

      Pros

      Great startup in 2008. Highly motivated peers and management. Company grew 8 times its 1st yr revenue

      Cons

      From 2012 on wards the company became extremely management heavy. Motivation level in the engineering team was in the decline. Even though the CEO tried middle management burdened and buried the growing company internal conflicting procedures.

      Advice to Management

      Try to resolve the cons and re motivate the bright engineers. open round table discussions are encouraged to keep the company growing and innovatove.

      Pros

      This company is always on the cutting-edge of semiconductor analytical technology. The working environment is good. They seem to care about their customers and are always striving to improve their methods and processes.

      Cons

      Sometimes decisions seem to be made based upon short-term considerations without regard for the long-term effect of those decisions.

      Advice to Management

      Recognize when you have good talent and do a better job of keeping it rather than letting it go and then trying to fill the voids over and over again later.

      I have been working at Dcg Systems full-time for more than 6 years

      Pros

      DCG is a small company that has grown every year since its inception in 2008. It makes innovative and interesting products that are used by leading edge customers in the semiconductor industry. The culture is dynamic but changing with growth.

      Cons

      Margin focused to the point of being penny-wise pound foolish at times. Benefits and pay are marginal especially for the bay area. Not especially respectful of the folks who turn the wheels on a daily basis (administrative, logistical, etc.).
