    I worked at Monolithic Power Systems full-time

    Pros

    Bonus at the end of the year but you mainly use it for the Holiday shut down they have, unless you have enough PTO to cover the 3 weeks. Full gym and yoga classes

    Cons

    HR team is a nightmare, they don't help with benefit questions nor look out for your best interest, if anything they're trying to get you in trouble. Pay isn't the greatest for Silicon Valley. You get vacation time but they frown upon you taking time off. You witness VP's cursing and degrading those who work under them. Just an overall non-team player environment. Everyone wants to point out what people do wrong but when it comes to helping avoid future issues, people especially HR say that isn't their job.

    Advice to Management

    Needs to hire new HR team who implements actual HR guidelines.

    Great Technology

    Cons

    Greedy Management
    CEO shows lack of vision
    Bad managers

    Advice to Management

    Management needs to stop being so greedy and allow people to move up the corporate ladder. The executives are very overpaid here. Most executives in a $250M company make about 30% what these guys make.

    I have been working at Monolithic Power Systems full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Good stock performance, good basket indoor gym

    Cons

    HR is the worst, there is no communication inside of company. Maybe top level management feel all people working here are too expansive comparing with new graduate from secondary university from China. So better quit yourself, before they move headquarter to China.
