    I worked at Mellanox for more than a year

    Pros

    – Some great and talented coworkers – Interesting technology – Benefits are decent

    Cons

    – With few exceptions, horrible management at all levels – Rampant sexism and sexual harassment – Favoritism shown to people of certain national or ethnic origins, disdain shown towards others – Aggressive, dishonest business style that does not work well with US-based customers – Horribly broken firmware and software

    I have been working at Mellanox

    Pros

    HR in the USA tries to cheer up employees with regular events and outings. Company regular promotes unqualified or inexperienced men; if you are a man, go for it.

    Cons

    Management decisions kept secret and orders are given to employees to execute without reasonable explanation, Everything is a big secret, information is siloed. Management routinely ignored employees' suggestions or requests. Most of the executives lock themselves in their offices and have no time for the employee. Employees are over-worked and many departments are run like sweat-shops. Add the poorly run work environment...

    Advice to Management

    Quit promoting employees into positions where they have no knowledge or experience. Try hiring some women into responsible positions-so far, the Company ignores qualified women.

    I have been working at Mellanox for more than a year

    Pros

    It is an Israeli company and the CEO and majority of technical team are in Israel. People are smart and hardworking, and the products and solutions have differentiation. The HR team tries to make it a fun working environment through a series of events.

    Cons

    Because it is an Israeli company, the decisions are mostly made in Israel. There is not a whole lot of transparency as to how decisions are made and budgets are allocated. The company engage in too many initiatives and without clear focus. Salary is OK, bonus is pretty terrible and they were ambiguous about how bonus is calculated.

      I worked at Mellanox full-time

      Pros

      You get a pay check.

      Cons

      No communication, lack of caring about employees, no coordination. culture is somewhat cut throat. The company It's like being in the military, just keep your mouth shut and take orders. Managers do not look into employee development People act to quick or act at the same time which is kind of effort waste and also result in lack of deeper thinking. People are arrogant and don’t want to time learn new things. A typical...

      Advice to Management

      Appreciate new employees and give them reason to stay, give more opportunities and adopt new ideas. Accept feedback on how to do things differently. Spend more money in formation, recognize initiative and taking risks. If everything else fails then, get a new CEO.

      Pros

      fast growing technology company striving to take on the big boys.

      Cons

      management disarray. Pricing models broken between channels, OEM, and online. Product quality and code quality makes sales difficult.

      Advice to Management

      Invest in management training from the top down. Rule by command and control in the US is not customary.

      I worked at Mellanox for less than a year

      Pros

      The people that work there for the most part are fantasitc. Everyone is helpful and the organization and processes within the company are better than most. Mellanox also pays more than the average tech company and has a bright future ahead of it with it's innovative Ethernet and InfiniBand technology.

      Cons

      Management is too into politics and a lot of backstabbing goes on behind the scenes. There was a constant uneasy sense in the building that employees were fearful for their jobs. The culture of the company is very WORK! WORK! WORK! based with no time to breath. It should be ok for somebody to step away from their work phone and not be tied down to it 24/7. Mellanox needs a change in culture.

      Advice to Management

      Your employees are there to help facilitate the direction of the company. It is a bad idea to overwork your employees and not give them a sense of belonging.

      I worked at Mellanox

      Pros

      I clicked very well with my team, learned how to use Matlab, and got a very very good understanding of DSP.

      Cons

      There was some busy-work (i.e. spreadsheets), and latexing my reports was a pain.

      Advice to Management

      Giving your interns direction about what they'll be doing before they come in is really helpful.
