    I worked at Power Integrations full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    A few remaining smart engineers

    Cons

    Mass exodus of the smart long termers

    Advice to Management

    You can't fix the exodus by just saying you can quickly hire replacements.
    De-centralize the decision making. You are no longer a small company.
    Top management should learn to listen to the troops more.

    Pros

    Excellent team work. Opportunity to interact with people across various functions and levels. Open work culture with little to no barriers.

    Laser focus in technology and product made excellent business case and helped maintain leadership in industry but was sometimes monotonous for employees.

    Pros

    Lots of smart engineers with good attitudes.

    Cons

    some engineers aren't paid what they deserve
    some engineering groups have serious management problems that aren't being addressed
    has glaring "big company" issues wherein problems that should be easy to fix, aren't, due to bureaucracy

    Advice to Management

    - try to be more organized and not waste engineering time flailing about
    - engineers aren't compensated with bonuses the same way some marketing/sales people are
    - recognize and address why some managers have a very high employee turnover rate

    Pros

    Perfect place to learn and enhance your analog test technical skills. Company provide better medical plan when compare to other companies.

    Cons

    HR cutting expenses all over places. I stop going to all of the company parties since HR is not willing to spend the money on employees.

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

    Pros

    If you want to go to a company where you just have to put in an 8 hours work day, pretend do work, and be a yes man and work with a bunch of stale people... this is the place. It is a great place to get a decent paycheck and good benefits and then secretly work on your life project.

    Cons

    Soul sucking.

    I actually heard that they refused a person for a job position because he was too ambitious.

    Horrible Upper Management.

    Micro managing

    Reminds me of Office Space.

    There is absolutely no room for growth. They need worker bees and discourage growth. As company grows the top get more power.

    Advice to Management

    I am sorry to say that upper management (VP's not CEO all of them) are beyond repair.
    I think directors and managers are pretty good.
