    I worked at Microsemi full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    My co-workers are pleasant to work with and the office hours are somewhat flexible. That's about all I can say that's good about this company at this point.

    Cons

    Upper Management and Executive Management lack leadership. This is probably the most unethical company I've ever worked for. They spend corporate money on private planes, personal parties, lavish dinners but haven't given the employees a merit increase in two years. They recently announced Microchip will be acquiring Microsemi, perhaps Microchip's management team will value their new employees and this company will be a great company to work for.

    Advice to Management

    Don't let the door hit you on your way out!!!!

    Look at some of the management structures that feature redundant managers and reorganize to a structure that makes sense.

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

    Pros

    Room for advancement, work close with Corp, never forgotten , great flexibility for those with children.

    Cons

    For promotions or advancement, it takes awhile for these processes to take place. Your bending over backwards and killing yourself for this company and they can't even speed up promotions for you even after they are promised. Constantly following up. Also Microsemi has just been acquired by Microchip. Not sure on their politic or anything what that company has to offer.

    Advice to Management

    Remember there is no company without employees. Please remember us and check on us to see if we're happy. Actually try to assist with the problems we have and try to have more concern.

    I worked at Microsemi full-time

    Pros

    It is normal company environment with all facilities like break room, gym ..

    Cons

    You feel everyone is hiding something or watching you. Some people work very hard and others don't. But both categories get the same rewards.

    Advice to Management

    Top management need to work hard to get sales, instead of laying off people.
