    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at Mellanox full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Highly technical company as a whole - very R&D oriented Top notch technology Compensations and benefits are good People are great - at US offices that I worked with

    Cons

    Company is divided between US and Israel both culturally and management-wise Promotion path not clear - varying across different teams

    Advice to Management

    Management should draw authority lines. Way too many VPs and product lines without a clear direction for the company as a whole. This leads to missing the opportunity on top notch technologies such as SiP.

    I worked at Mellanox full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Mellanox is a place where if you learn well on your own and learn well being thrown from fire to fire in the most chaotic way imaginable then you will learn tons. Admittedly most of the learning will come from your clients correcting you. In Mellanox the quality of the clients you work for is much larger than that of the company itself.

    Cons

    Less than negative work life balance. Management is encouraged to "push" employees to their "limits". This is literally in a management guide I came across in their grossly disorganized public folders and directories. Employee burnout is at an all time maximum during my time there. The turn over makes it so trying to bring anyone into the fold is a nightmare. Middle management is completely untrained and in most...

    Advice to Management

    You will never keep good talent under your hood as long as you treat people the way you do.

    I have been working at Mellanox full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Work on cutting edge technology, providing the best solution to the customers. There is strong connection to the field and the customers, the contribution and the business that your work brings is very clear. Multinational work environment. Gym on site (but rarely used due to high work pressure).

    Cons

    Terrible work life balance, and very stressful environment. Not enough attention on employee development. Lunch is not covered, and the kitchenette on site is very poor.
