    I have been working at Exar full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Have a great team to work with. Flexible work at home policy. All of the team I work with impress me with their professionalism and general product and customer knowledge. Have had numerous opportunities to lean new skills in my profession.

    Cons

    Have found that annual reviews have been sporadic and sometimes did not occur in certain years. Would like to get documented feedback on how I am doing.

    Advice to Management

    Vacation policy requiring taking time off in specific quarters is a bit annoying. Some like to accumulate and take longer duration vacations. The typical 2 week vacation at initial hire.

    Pros

    In general, Exar has competent employees who are nice people. There are lots of people with 10 or more years at the company who manage to keep the company going.

    Cons

    Exar has a broad focus for such a relatively small company (about 500 employees). It is easy for the smaller projects to get lost among the handful of larger projects.

    Review salary's for hourly employees and middle wage earners.
