    Pros

    It's possible to learn about different markets, applications, and technologies. It's a very technology-oriented company.

    Cons

    PMC treats its employees poorly compared to other companies in the valley. It continues to lag the market and other companies its size. It has a very Canadian attitude, which doesn't cut it in Silicon Valley where there are better managed as well as truly innovative in the products that it offers.

    Advice to Management

    Hire some better management. Truly innovate and try to create a better work environment for your employees.
