No opinion of CEO

Pros

Company has designed good products. has good device engineering and process for portable applications. good chance to win more markets if product definitions are allowed by applications and marketing. The design engineers are very good.

Cons

As a engineer you will have to work hard to get a promotion. Designers are in charge of products and not many applications engineers are able to define new product lines. Some products take a long time to get to customers for sampling. They will not spend a lot of money on new equipment or CAD. lots of new engineers are hired in China

Advice to Management

Should spend some money on new lab equipment and hire more junior applications engineers in US. promote good engineers to become managers or allow them to define new products

    I have been working at Monolithic Power Systems full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    1. Stable financial environment and rapid business growth during my time here, for a fresh, it was a good start to learn the completed and formal process of a big company.
    2. The salary total package is actually good, it has salary increase every year, it may not be attractive at first, but the longer you stay in MPS, the more you feel you couldn`t leave there because it`s hard for you to find other place like MPS could offer you such competitive salary.
    3. The people are nice here, the atmosphere is quite easy and relax working in MPS. We hired most qualified and talented people, they know how to cooperation and communication, It is really happy working with these people.

    Cons

    1. The benefits and entertainment besides the base salary are poor and so common, no any surprise and amusing activities during these years.
    2. Cross functional training or role exchanging is hard to promote, lack of close communication among different departments, most junior employees find it is difficult to get to know other departments and have difficult in making new friends.

    Advice to Management

    You already did a great job to found the company and maintain it.
