    I worked at InvenSense

    Pros

    Emerging technology, Interesting products and deep knowledge in MEMS design

    Cons

    Horrible management !!!!!! Roadmap of the company changes quarterly if not monthly. Most of the managers are promoted immaturely and not qualified to be a manager at all. Lots of micromanaging .. No work/life balance at all. Expect to work in the weekends. Basically you need to work like crazy to satisfy the high end customers needs. There is no feedback mechanism , your manager will not give you feedback at all at the end of the quarter, because they They don't give you a decent salary increase or title upgrade unless you ask for it , or show them you have an offer in hand. They tell you, they value you only you have an offer. Otherwise you are a working slave. Horrible insurance plans and benefits, not even close to an average company.

    Advice to Management

    Focusing of the customers is good, but you should think about your employees as well. You cant manage a company with the "cheap" mentally forever. You need to built up a proper feedback mechanism from top to bottom. There is already a review procedure but nobody follows it. Did you realize that ?
