    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.

    I worked at LitePoint full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Strong technical individuals. Excellent benefits (health insurance, catered lunches). Open and collaborative employees. Plenty of diversity, supportive of foreign workers (i.e. visa sponsorships). When focused on an objective, the company can execute!

    Cons

    Not a place to grow as a manager - eg, people managers are not involved in formal reviews and compensation inputs for their staff. Exec team tends to micromanage, lacks vision, and is too reliant on a rapidly eroding market/customer base. A revolving door with sales and marketing executives is a troubling sign. Compensation packages not competitive in the Valley.

    Advice to Management

    Let managers manage. Execs need to focus on taking the company in new directions.

    I have been working at LitePoint as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    - Great lunch
    - Smart people.
    - I learnt a lot here. My mentor helped me to gain all the necessary job knowledge and I also managed to handle school work. My manager is very supportive, when I have lots of homework he allows me to work flexibly.
    - Made some nice friends and a mentor.
    - Made me what I am today and after gaining the knowledge and skills I am getting lots of job opportunities, but I am happy here.
