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

    Pros

    The company culture is outstanding. From flexible hours/working at home to professional development to working with people who think positively and who are exceedingly helpful and who take extreme pride in their contributions to the company's success. A fun, efficient and collaborative environment. Great benefits, good opportunities for growth

    Cons

    downside is that if things go badly and expectations aren’t met, and if the bottom line is negatively impacted, you’re an easier scapegoat

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

    Pros

    I spent almost 4.5 years, and there was never a dull day when it came to work. Friendly peers, and a lot of challenging work.

    Cons

    What gave in was the fact that the senior management did not appreciate frank inputs and formed perceptions and opinions - and used the same to stall growth and judge.

    Advice to Management

    The truth hurts most of times, but if someone can understand the loyalty and sincerity of the person speaking it, they'll appreciate the effort.
