  1. "New direction but can they compete in PMICs with generic turn-around template?"

    Approves of CEO

    I worked at Intersil full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    - new management is very clear on their new strategy, all employees know the plan
    - most top execs seem to be solid
    - recent quarter results good
    - 401k

    Cons

    - cut back too far in sales, mktg and apps, manufacturing.
    - many good, effective people gone or RIF'd.
    - PMIC market loaded with heavy weights. How will they design right device, deliver on time in a very competitive area? It hasn't been that case the last 6-7 years.
    - putting all emphasis on hiring designers for PMICs.
    - CEO communication style is based on plan clarity but is definitely not a motivational-based leader.
    - still has some execs from old Harris days that need to be replaced with newer, fresher idea managers

    Advice to Management

    - focus more on sales support, you've cut back too far.
    - "design it and they will come" strategy will not work, need more than a bunch of smart engineers to be successful.
    - you're in Silicon Valley, quit acting like an old, stoggy IC company from the 90's and make working at Intersil competitive with other leading companies

    Negative Outlook
    No opinion of CEO

    I have been working at Intersil full-time

    Pros

    Very few engineers for any projects, so the visibility is high

    Cons

    Bad acquisitions, bad management, just bureaucracy, nothing gets done really.

    Advice to Management

    Grow up... hire the right talent, the people hired by intersil have lukewarm talent so that the management can keep their monopoly going strong. They are afraid to hire people who are realistic or really good.
