    I worked at Inphi full-time for more than 6 years

    Pros

    The only good thing is you might meet and know some excellent engineers.

    Cons

    Some managers are abusive. Work load is brutal and uninspiring. No balance between work and life.

    Advice to Management

    I would never recommend Inphi to be anyone seeking for a job. The work load is insane and unreasonable. They do not work smart. They work "hard" and "dump". My manager is abusive, disrespectful, and clueless. There's no such thing as work-life balance. He will keep adding work to you, screw you, threaten you, and humiliate you by using bad words and discriminating comments. This is the worst place I've ever been. Lucky...

      No opinion of CEO

      I worked at Inphi full-time for more than 4 years

      Pros

      They have fooled people into thinking they know what they are doing.

      Cons

      Too much to share here but weak processes and lack of integrity from the top of the company down. It comes from the CEO on down. The so-called open culture is one big lie and the employees know it too.

      Advice to Management

      Sell the company and stop lying to employees.

      Leading edge technology development. Strong R&D team. Innovative. Business goal driven. High level of management to employee communications. Good benefits.

      Like any other companies, not every thing is perfect. Good thing is that the company has the culture/drive to push for continuous improvements.

      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.
