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

    Pros

    I worked with one of the best teams at MACOM - there was nothing but genuine respect and appreciation for the work and time each member contributed. I had the ability to ask questions to anyone at any level and was able to take ownership on a lot of projects.

    Cons

    Lack of female leadership

    Advice to Management

    Continue to seek new ways to improve corporate culture

    I worked at MACOM (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Interesting company with a very long technology heritage which had been bumped from owner to owner in the last twenty years. More interested in acquisitions than the internal growth.

    Cons

    Needs to flatten the company management structure. It cannot keep riding on the few cash cows as the industry is rapidly changing with many new competitors coming to the market.

    Advice to Management

    Simplify, simplify, simplify. Share the vision with the employees, contractors, etc.

    Please be sure to check out the CEO blogs on the company intranet, and the investor relations site as well, where you can find a lot more information on the company and where we want to be both today... More

    Pros

    Always growing, lots of job growth opportunities

    Cons

    work is constantly intense, there are no slow days at all, tenure and "family atmosphere" doesn't exist, HR is for the Company/Managers

    Listen to your employees and treat them well. They're working very hard for you!

    I have been working at MACOM full-time

    Pros

    MACOM is a good company for an Engineer to learn by hands-on experience. Competitive salary and compensation. Company has grown in many new areas over the last several years.

    Cons

    Company is very spread out across the globe which is probably a good thing. However, it often seems to be less efficient working with several people at many locations for different tasks rather than a more localized facility.

    Advice to Management

    Would recommend providing better training/documentation on executing key tasks, especially when introducing new processes.

    Pros

    Great work environment. Everyone was super friendly and willing to help me learn during my internship. I also got to play ping pong everyday at lunch which I loved. Internship program was run really well and I truly felt like part of the MACOM family by the end.

    Cons

    Terrible coffee and the cubicles were kind of depressing. Overall great place to work.
