    Advice to Management

    Your word represents the Company. If you say something, do it. Too many times things were said that were never followed through on. Act like you care & employees matter.

    I have been working at Dialog Semiconductor as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Room to learn many aspects in designing, testing and marketing an IC.
    All teams from testing to marketing to FAE are very good and willing to teach and share their knowledge from experience.
    Some really good experts in the power field work.

    Cons

    Campbell office has very serious diversity problem. Everybody in the design, verification and System (Applications) group are Chinese. I also noticed most of them are from one university in China. It is difficult to communicate with them and not willing to share knowledge. I got really surprised to see some conversations in design review were in their language.

    I have been working at Dialog Semiconductor full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Paid training courses, many benefits and stock options. Some engineers are paid very generously. Most importantly, the company has a future.

    Cons

    Bad location (Swindon). Design engineers mostly do verification (unless you're a Principle Engineer) and learn little. The business (power management) is not very interesting. Large gaps in engineering salaries.
