    I have been working at Inphi full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Each aspect of the company has intelligent, talented people trying to execute something special and different. This is a rare opportunity to focus on the part of the business that we are supposed to be good at, and have confidence that the other parts are led and staffed by equally talented and inspired people, and as a collective, great things are happening. The work is challenging, the schedules tight, and we count on each other to do our parts. As a result, the company has experience fabulous growth and success, with the employees as shareholders, sharing in that success.

    Cons

    The only easy day was yesterday. If you are looking for comfort in a job, this may not be the best place for you. But if you are looking for a sense of belonging and accomplishment from your work, you would be hard pressed to find a better opportunity.

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

    Pros

    Generally well balanced team across all disciplines. Inphi has been growing steadily in the past number of years. A company cannot grow consistently without a balance team. There are always room for improvements in any team and organization. Good news is that Inphi management is open minded and willing to take feedback and push for continuous improvements. Leading edge, not me-too products. Able to work on Interesting projects is important for many strong & good engineers. Relatively speaking, company willing to invest into tools, equipment & compute hardware. CEO driving growth. Pay is competitive and RSU returns are good as company is still in a fast growth-mode. Good snacks, drinks, fruits & free lunch every Wed.

    Cons

    Inphi has more opportunities than it can handle, hence, always can use more help/resources. Hiring "good" engineers takes time, and translates into resource shortage. Used to have some territorial and/or "difficult" personnel/managers, changes have been made, but things like this will take a year or two to allow the dust to settle. (Fortunately, more than a year has gone by). New Inphi members probably don't even see this previsously less desirable atmosphere any more. This is the reason why there seems to be mixed review relating to politics etc. related matter.

Join the Inphi team to learn and contribute. The pay is good and the RSUs are awesome.

    Cons

    Demanding customers, tough competitors, always keep moving.
