    I have been working at Inphi full-time

    Pros

    stock doing ok, some talented people and nice co-workers. Good outlook in short-term. CEO seems has vision.

    Cons

    Unreasonable schedules, long hours, ask you to work on weekends for free. VERY bad place for employees that are below principal level and who wants to grow. Some inexperienced managers keep changing their mind and hold no responsibly but only takes credit when they can. Blame-shifting is often, and management likes to keep everything in secret. Compensation and benefits starts to shrink.

    Advice to Management

    Treat employees like normal human being, not your kids or slaves.

    I have been working at Inphi full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Inphi is a great place to work, with a team-orientated, all-hands approach to problem solving and execution. There is never any finger-pointing or blame-shifting. People at Inphi take responsibility for their roles and look out for one another. The benefits are great and the stock has performed well.

    Cons

    People at Inphi work hard. If working late or working weekends is what is takes to make a shipment or meet a deadline, they will do it.

    Advice to Management

    I would spend a little more time on a social media presence as a cost-effective way to gain brand recognition and inform consumers, customers, and investors.
