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

    Pros

    good company with a lot of extra benefits. A leading power conversion company with mid level cap.

    Cons

    none- I don't see too much growth and opportunities at this place. It's a good location for commuter coming from Morgan Hill or south from there.

    Advice to Management

    NA

    I have been working at Power Integrations full-time

    Pros

    If you live in south SJ, commute is not bad.

    Cons

    I joined in 2016 and have seen a tolerance for incompetence that blows my mind. Upper Management mostly focuses on financial metrics as success criteria. Employees are flying under the radar to avoid confrontation and the associated risks by displeased management when issues are brought up as problematic such as work place bullying, and no bonuses.

    Advice to Management

    All levels of management need to listen to internal and external input provided and take action towards improved organizational health.

    I have been working at Power Integrations full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Stable company, fair compensation, reasonable work expectations (rarely have to work outside the usual 9 to 5), people are generally friendly

    Cons

    Not a lot of room for advancement, somewhat stuck in the past, not very creative or forward-thinking when it comes to presenting the company to larger public, not open to non-traditional work situations (e.g., telecommuting)

    Advice to Management

    Time to move into the 21st century.

    Negative Outlook

    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.
