    I have been working at Mellanox full-time for 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!!

      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 worked at Mellanox full-time for less than a year

      Pros

      Hard core solid fundamental hardware development - some of the best.

      Cons

      No career plan. When times get tough the blame starts with no clear direction. 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. Lack of resources to complete the mission. Hostile reaction to alternative ideas within meetings.

      Advice to Management

      Sell the company while you can.

      Pros

      Nice benefits ..excellent 401k,,ESP and medical and also fully stocked kitchens with fresh fruits , soda , milk(all kinds), yogurts, candies and more. Work balance is not to bad.

      Cons

      Sometime changes are warranted but too much red tape to implement.....Headquarters (Israel doesn't know what US office is doing/not doing. Training leaves a lot to be desired( no procedures documented)

      I worked at Mellanox full-time for less than a year

      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

      - 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...

      Pros

      If you are looking for a company that is known for not upholding any of the following: • Family growth support • Management opportunities for women or minorities • Social activities/charities or environmental causes • Sponsorship or mentor programs • Competitive salary match Than this is the place for you! On a positive note they do have snacks in the kitchen and allow dogs to come into work with...

      While at Mellanox I interacted with a fantastic group of people. Unfortunately, most didn’t last long or were/are very unhappy. The HR team in the US is inefficient and inexperienced. Mellanox has had a track record of hiring HR directors/managers who have no knowledge or experience in U.S. Law. Mellanox has proven time and time again that they have no loyalty or appreciation for employees. Let alone people who have...

      Advice to Management

      Employees are not possessions but rather human beings with feelings. When properly nurtured in a work environment, they thrive, and the company or team thrives. Management is controlling, egotistical, shows a lack of empathy, and a lack of acknowledgement or appreciation. Change this otherwise you will continue to lose great people. Do not neglect the development of the team. My manager was not a developer of...
