    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.

    Pros

    Rapidly expanding company. Strong management is in place and they give very clear goals and objectives. Profitable. Great opportunities for career development. Very strong design engineering.

    Cons

    Because the company is growing so rapidly, there can be some compromise on work/life balance. Most managers seem to be aware of this.

    Advice to Management

    Management team is very strong. They are very focused on growing the company through acquisitions.
