    Pros

    Hard charging company focused on being the best. If you work there you are expected to perform. Excellent product easy to sell. Loyal customers.

    Too much focus on military business. The company needed to expand to other higher volume markets.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you have been doing which is expect results from your employees and give big stock rewards for a job well done

    Analog purchased Hittite and removed most of the management structure. Hopefully that helped.

    I have been working at Hittite Microwave full-time

    Pros

    Overall, great people. Most do not take themselves too seriously. Opportunity to work with multiple teams and departments. Inventing some very cool and cutting edge products (note: these are semiconductors [computer chips]). Free bagel Fridays!

    Cons

    While executive leadership is strong, middle management is weak. Some department heads hold knowledge like it is gold where other departments heads are more inclusive. EVERYONE punches a clock. Exec mindset is that working remotely isn't working.

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of dead wood faster. Hold middle management accountable for developing team. Allow more people to receive bonuses and stock.

    Pros

    Good people to work with who are knowlegdable in their fields. Due to the relativley small size oft he company communication with senior and middle is easy.

    Cons

    Given the small size of the company it is nessecary to put in a lot of hours to get work completed to meet coustomer demand.
