    I worked at LitePoint (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Interesting product if you’re into microwave RF hardware. I never had trouble buying test equipment I needed for my projects. They tend to pay well and attract talented people. Free lunch every day is very sociable. The buildings are modern and comfortable. People have a good attitude towards the company.

    Cons

    Very few cons. I don’t think there is anything I would complain about from an employee standpoint. From a company standpoint, they have not been thinking far enough ahead in the market. Also too concentrated on too few customers. I don’t think I ever heard anyone complain about Litepoint.

    Advice to Management

    Keep the spirit of the company alive. People are productive and happy. Don’t mess with what’s working by attempting to improve things. Focus on getting some new products that will sell.

    Pros

    The engineers are all very smart and driven. Good benefits (free lunch, yoga, tai-chi). Small team environments allow for faster implementation of projects.

    Cons

    Business is limited to a few key companies. The sector is only driven by changes in IEEE specs. Not alot of room for upward movement.

    Pros

    LitePoint is a leader in the wireless factory test industry. Technically, it is a very innovative company, and continues to grow very rapidly. It offers very competitive salaries plus generous cash bonuses and stock awards. Lunch is free everyday! And lots of international travel!!

    Cons

    LitePoint was acquired by Teradyne in 2012. The environment is less informal than it used to be, possibly because of large parent company influence.

    I worked at LitePoint full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great Comps i.e. healthcare, vision and dental. Free lunch. Freed drinks (including coffee)
    The company had a open culture in the beginning allow direct access to the leader ship creating an innovating environment where people felt ownership.
    A lot of good people.

    Cons

    Some leaders did not understand the open culture and were unable to learn soft skills and good leadership.
    Instead they used bad behavior to run their personnel creating fear in the work place and resulted in lack of feedback and innovation.
    These folks caused in my opinion a lot of damage to the initial culture and should have been delft with.

    Advice to Management

    Remove the bad leaders asap before the culture is completely spoiled.
    Listen and act on employee suggestions and recommendation and own up to the errors made and fix them in stead of sticking with status quo.
