    I worked at Lattice Semiconductor (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The company is well managed in some respects. They are very good with managing by the numbers. That provides a certain amount of stability and confidence,. There were a few talented people that were helpful, Plus I enjoyed the company's product lines and markets.

    Cons

    Despite what Lattice says, the company is not totally dedicated to its employees. Like many employees. I felt the guys at the top managed the company for their own benefit. This selfishness permeated the attitude of many of my colleagues. Rather than cooperating on projects, they were more interested in managing their own time and keeping their head down to focus on their own objectives.

    Advice to Management

    Since much time has passed since I was there, I am not certain what I would tell managment now. Hopefully they are not managing like it is Intel in a bygone era.

    I worked at Lattice Semiconductor full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    For the most part, the people who work there are great to be around and I consider friends. The product line is interesting and the company has the potential to be great.

    Cons

    Management is a revolving door. Silos are common. Favoritism runs rampant. Unlimited PTO only if a favorite. No appreciation for accomplishments with focus only on faults. Lack of support on virtually every level. Management is difficult to trust and adds little value. Fear of layoffs is a constant concern for everyone. The overall vibe is one of depression.

    Advice to Management

    Get it together and assure employees that the company is moving forward in the right direction. Get the right combination of management and perhaps perform background checks on them. Do the best to retain talent... so many great employees have either been laid off or left for better opportunities.

    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    In general, and especially below the VP level, there are good people dedicated to the product and the success of the company.

    Cons

    Most of the senior execs are beholden to an ego-driven CEO and won't rock the boat even when they know he's making another big mistake. The Board is spineless and is unwilling to hold him accountable for serial strategic errors and the overall dismal performance of the company, so the littler guys get the blame. Sad end to a once very interesting and dynamic company.

    Advice to Management

    Remember how to make FPGAs or find another CEO who does.

    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.
