    Pros

    The people, including first level managers, are great. There are plenty of opportunities for outdoor adventure. The benefits are reasonable, and you can try your hand at many different parts of the ASIC design flow.

    Cons

    It's a public company that makes decisions based on quarterly financials rather than long term planning. They would rather buy/hire talent than develop it internally. Very little outside training. Still using older methodologies.

    Advice to Management

    Invest in employee training.

    Pros

    You are always busy. Facility is being updated with a lot of new decor providing a more modern feel as you walk the halls. Also added a new gym.

    Not as rewarding to those outside of management. The industry is very cyclical so there are constant ebbs and flows. Hard to advance.

    You need more people to do the work and fewer delegating.

    Office hours working.
    Motorola analog division culture and people
    A lot of good engineering document left from Motorola age.

    Not too many good engineers left there thorough the years.

    The top management seems lack of divisions and lack of focus. They tried to acquire multiple companies of various products but cannot focus on high ASP high margin products.
