    Pros

    cutting edge technology, friendly working environment. excellent tools

    Cons

    incompetent top management, who wasted most of the company's last several years on wrong products and failed to properly manage acquired companies (Trident & Mobius). The company started downhill roll when the CEO and CFO put up that "Reserved Parking" signs for themselves

    I have been working at Entropic Communications full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Free soda if you call that a pro to working someplace. I have worked at Entropic in San Diego for years It used to have many pros, but lately it's hard to find very many. With the purchase of the Trident SOC business, the work environment is on a rapid downhill trajectory to make Entropic like any other crappy semiconductor company. Any competent engineer could find a much better place to work.

    Cons

    Fired about 5% of the people on November 28, 2012 even though the company is financially strong and has openings that the CEO euphemistically called "...resource reallocations throughout the Company". It seems like the goal is to put fear into the remaining employees that they could be fired at anytime if they don't play the political game correctly. The end result will be everybody looking out for themselves and making sure somebody looks worse than them when the next firing comes. The management seems to be rapidly changing to the old school fear based model of management. Meanness seems to be the latest fad in the Entropic executive suite. Other cons: Office space is cramped and noisy making it hard to get work done. Complete lack of transparency and honesty in management and decision making. SOC business purchased from Trident is in much worse shape that management is telling investors with serious quality problems in the product line. You won't find any enlightened management practices here. Don't expect to get training in a new position if your position is no longer needed. Expect to get fired instead.

    I have been working at Entropic Communications

    Pros

    A small company with big ideas and opportunities. Great working environment, some great technology but absence of sigficant sales a bit de-motivating. Definitely reward good people well.

    Cons

    Some elements of engineering very inchoate for a significant SOC Company. Sites outside of HQ can feel a little isolated in terms of ensuring their voice is heard
