    I have been working at Mellanox full-time

    Pros

    It plays in the truly high tech space with an amazing engineering team that gets it right every time which means your job and your stock (they have an SPP) will continue to weather challenges despite the markets. Great benefits including matching 401K and good insurance plan plus a great team to work with

    Cons

    Nothing as of now but will update in future as I see them

    Advice to Management

    keep doing what you have been doing

    I have been working at Mellanox full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    There are really no pros.. Management is not willing to make improvements to processes and the processes in place are very repetitive and broken. There is blatant favoritism throughout the organization and the work/life balance is horrible. Benefits, 401(k) and ESPP are fair and compensation is average.

    Cons

    The HR Department in the US is broken. There are no true professionals that work in HR for Mellanox US and issues are constantly delegated instead of addressed so you get the run-around on all issues because nobody knows what they are doing... That is frustrating!

    Advice to Management

    Pay more attention to lower level employees and lead by example in a positive way. I have never worked in a more stressful environment. Several of the employees are miserable. Understand that and make the changes!!

    Management disappears for weeks at a time.
    Social loafing and protection going on.
    Portrayal in the interview 180 degree different than reality.
    Shell games with comp plan and subjective adjustments.

    Pros

    Management makes decisions quickly, identifying opportunities and whether to pursue them.They try to lead the market through innovation not preserving turf.
    The workplace is friendly, there is lots of work to do. Employees are encouraged to stretch, to learn, to advance. No one is locked in.

    Cons

    If you want to push for a change in process or approach, you will need to push pretty hard.

    Advice to Management

    Engage more frequently with lower-level staff

    Pros

    Best company ever. Executives are tough but fair and everyone has high standards. I have experienced very little politics. Had the freedom I needed to build a great team and enjoy the international aspect of the company tremendously. Not for immature or the unfocused, this company is for A-listers.

    Cons

    None so far, really enjoying the fast pace and the bleeding edge technology.

    I worked at Mellanox full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    salary, benefits, peers, snack bar, plants around the office

    Cons

    - If you have any kind of personality whatsoever, this company is not for you
    - you are to do your job and keep your mouth shut because mgmt is ALWAYS right
    - moving at the "speed of light" is not an option here, you would not be able to keep up
    - Working for an Israeli company is a challenge in itself; working with finance is BEYOND miserable!!!!
    - Favoritism, favoritism, favoritism
    - You don't want to disagree with anything upper mgmt says, period
    - they do not respect or appreciate loyal employees who work hard daily as working hard is not enough; they want more
    - they will use you and throw you away when they're done with you

    Advice to Management

    Mellanox needs a culture change immediately! Actually, that will never happen.
