    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.

    I have been working at Integrated Device Technology full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    A lot of nice, hard working, dedicated people. Beautiful campus, great commute

    Cons

    The current CEO came into a messed up Campana and has made a lot of improvements and got the company on a better trajectory. He has taken the company as far as he can. The board should consider a new CEO now. The company has turned to desperate moves to appear more attractive to Wall Street. The executives are really now just positioning the company for their personal benefit. Employees are regularly laid off for no apparent reason other than squeezing a little more money to the bottom line. They never think of moving them into a new role. At this company HR will not help you.

    Advice to Management

    Get a new CEO, look for talent beyond the TI good old boys network.
