  3. "Good while it lasts"

    StarStarStarStarStar
    Former Employee - Senior Design Engineer 

    I worked at Integrated Device Technology full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Really depends on your immediate team. I had a good team to work with. Did good work. Pay was competitive. Bonus was excellent. Work was rewarding most of the time. No regrets. It was good while it lasted. Made some good friends. If you find the right group it is worth it.

    Cons

    Revenue and profits depend on relatively few products. When they decide to cut costs, you never know where the Axe is going to land. But to be fair, most companies are this way. Just make sure your skills are sharp.

    Advice to Management

    Good Luck. There is a decent chance of growth and success. Next year is going to be key.

    I worked at Integrated Device Technology full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Worked with a lot of great people. Good cooperation across groups and BUs.

    Cons

    New CEO/board is slashing R&D spending. IDT is going to go down the same path it was 10 years ago.

    Advice to Management

    Reinvest in the company, not the stock price.

    Senior Design Engineer in Atlanta, GA
    Approves of CEO

    I worked at Integrated Device Technology

    Pros

    Low pressure in project schedule if you are not too slow in mind. Small site for good communication and quite working hours. Good CAD team to support your work.

    Cons

    Technical competence is limited. Poor geometric location so that limited opportunities. People are becoming defensive and "Yes Man" style to save their jobs. Management doesn't respect your ideas when they are different from his own. Limited career path since the senior management can go no where else but staying ahead of you.

    Advice to Management

    Respect different ideas.

    Senior Engineer in San Jose, CA
    Disapproves of CEO

    I have been working at Integrated Device Technology

    Pros

    You are rarely asked to work long hours.

    Cons

    There are so many... A recent change in senior management has the company going after small markets already dominated by big players.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on the few areas that IDT engineering is good at, instead of venturing out to unfamiliar territories where IDT has no expertise.
