    I have been working at Lattice Semiconductor full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Lynda.com training is available to the entire company and training (at least 40 hours per year) is encouraged. Choice of Mac or PC is nice.

    Cons

    Lattice Semiconductor is the kind of place where you go in, get the work done and go home. I wouldn't say it is a fun place to work.

    Advice to Management

    I don't really have any advice.

    Pros

    Recent acquisition of Silicon Image is promising. Working at Lattice provides a real opportunity to have a contributing stake in the organization. You work on significant projects that matter.

    Cons

    Integrating two companies takes time and is critical to success.

    I have been working at Lattice Semiconductor full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    You are allowed to be creative, and interact with many different engineering disciplines. You may be able to write your own automation tools, if none exist, and add that to your resume. The people you work with are excellent folks, and you will feel a sense of inclusion from the first day.

    Cons

    You might think you are overworked sometimes, but hard work is good for everyone. There is a sense that there aren't enough resources to fulfill all the vision of the company, and this should be corrected to make us competitive.

    Advice to Management

    Although you mgmt. types are very busy, it can't be used as an excuse to not visit your underlings. Absentee management needs to be eliminated if we are to survive in this tricky economy. I can't speak for all management, but I know some that have an approach to management that seems a bit out of touch with the individual contributors. 2nd level managers fall into this category mostly. Besides listening to your 1st line managers, you need to visit the people that work hard at the bottom to help you understand how your group functions.
