    Pros

    Fantastic growth rate and in hot markets. Enjoy the people and projects though the pace is quick.

    Can be high pressure as the teams work on deadlines for hot projects but I feel like that is part of being in growth markets and it is also exciting

    Advice to Management

    keep scaling the company to meet the growth

    Pros

    Best tech, great leadership, sincere concern for employees and active programs to groom staff.

    Cons

    The company is growing and although its really a pro, there are growing pains.

    Advice to Management

    Stay true and razor focused on your market. Don't be tempted to venture into businesses you don't understand or do not move the current vision forward. The world is littered with projects and companies that chased growth instead of quality only to weaken their core competency, confuse customers and employees then fail spectacularly. We don't need to take over the world, just our part of it. To do that you need an awesome, fine tuned organization. Your employees will bring you that if aggressively supported and given authority, responsibility, respect and recognition. We are behind you, lets do this!

    I have been working at Inphi full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    A leading developer of interesting high speed communication products, and very profitable.
    Excellent employee development opportunities: training courses, lunch & learns, and opportunities for conference participation.
    Great people: the spirit of cooperation and friendship within teams and across the organization is outstanding.
    Maintenance of high employee morale with weekly catered lunches, monthly breakfasts, and employee appreciation meals.
    Santa Clara office within easy walking distance of convention center (DesignCon), and Levi's Stadium (site of an excellent company Holiday Party a few months back.)
    Groups in Northern and Southern California work very well together. Travel between these sites is encouraged and very convenient distance wise.

    Cons

    Traffic to/from Inphi can be a challenge, especially during Levi's Stadium Events. May get worse if the 49er's learn out how to win again. Bright side of this point is that if you attend any events at the Levi's stadium, you won't have to pay for parking.

    Advice to Management

    While Inphi keeps growing at a very fast rate, try to keep the bureaucracy as low and the efficiency as high as it is now. Easier said than done, but a worthwhile corporate goal.

    As a fast growing company, Inhi needs a better EPR system to manage documents, material, and procedure.

    Pros

    Great engineers
    Good collaboration among different teams. Little politics
    CEO knows the business, down to the earth, and approachable

    Cons

    New product introduction is not well planned - too many products too quickly

    Performance review is heavily based on manager's perception instead of actual accomplishments. Also, if department management works at a different site, you will likely receive less recognition

    Advice to Management

    Slow down on acquisitions and integrate Clarify first - we already have enough different products for a company of our size
