    Pros

    IDT's traditional business areas are healthy and doing extremely well, especially for its size.

    Cons

    This review is intended for the OID division, which was formed by acquiring GigPeak/GigOptix. The optical business depends highly on China, and with the recent slow-down the business is not doing well. The design team works on many designs, but there are not enough resources to support all of them. There is no cooperation and support between teams. On top of that, the designs are years behind their competitors, so they can only compete in price which is never a good place to be. The management lacks respect for engineering, and there was essentially no communication, forecast, and planning from the management. This results in every single product and project becoming last-minute emergencies when a customer decides to buy one (if ever), and everything becomes priority. The employees work very hard to make things happen, but this being repeated time after time have resulted in extremely low morale and frequent turn-overs.

    If you enjoy hard work without recognition, this place is for you.

    Advice to Management

    Hire competent engineers, empower them by letting them have the resources and time to work, and focus on a fewer projects instead of way too many. Hold frequent reviews to include all teams even in the design phase, so that things do not become emergencies. Many problems can be avoided if there are regular reviews. Actually respect your employees and the work they do, not bully them into pointless overtime to cover your own short-comings.

    Pros

    Benefits are okay, not the best in the valley, but okay.

    Cons

    Reactionary work environment when it shouldn't be, a lot of managers that are protected, very limited advancement opportunities for engineers, just worker bees. High turnover rate, probably related to the above?

    Advice to Management

    More workers...less non working managers.
