    Pros

    Multicultural environment.
    Good place to start working or to spend a couple of years, but not too stay too long.

    Cons

    Despite of the big grow, still working as a start-up company: no flows defined, big chaos, always in fire fighting mode.
    No development plan provided to the employees. The only provided trainings are related to soft skills (which are fine, but people also need to get developed on the technical side). Therefore it is easy to get stuck after a while.

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of the old dinosaurs.

    I have been working at Dialog Semiconductor full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Multicultural Environment with less hierarchy, working with dynamic teamwork and project-based teamwork. Not very strict company policy on working hours.

    Cons

    Running autopilot as most of engineers are experienced. Need more leadership demonstrated by manager. Career or promotion is not really transparent, seems to be cherry picking.

    Advice to Management

    Redundancy on managerial level, not giving any ease on daily work life but causing more chaos. Fire fighter shows anytime problem happened. Lesson learned cultured is only paper work.

    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.

    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.

    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.
