    Pros

    * Many companies give lip service to the idea that 'we care about our employees' , but in QuickLogic's case, this is true.
    * Fast moving customers and markets
    * GREAT work-life balance opportunities
    * Good people

    Cons

    * Some resistance to change amongst employees
    * Smaller company = limited resources
    * Shift from older product focus to newer product focus hasn't happened quick enough

    Advice to Management

    Keep driving forward. You know better what is happening in the company than any management team I've ever had. Keep on that path!!!

    I worked at QuickLogic full-time

    Pros

    Small company with start-up enthusiasm. The company has a close family feel, and you get to know everyone in the company. Co-workers are approachable across departments, and there isn't too much red tape to get things done.

    Cons

    Little to no training or structured knowledge transfer. The products are not what one would consider cutting edge. There is dissension within the ranks that the management may not be aware of.

    Advice to Management

    Pay attention to career goals of employees, and how to facilitate growth.

    Pros

    It's one of the best places where I have worked because of the culture. It feels like an extended family. Most employees are nice and genuinely try to work with each other, and the management encourages schedule flexibility and spending time with family.

    Cons

    The company direction and strategy is good, but their financial growth does depends on how fast is the growth of the wearables and IoT markets

    Pros

    Mostly great management, not adverse to taking risks, open communication, a formerly great culture that can again be that way

    Cons

    Politics have taken over, some people/departments are not working in the best interest of the company (rather for themselves), older building and not too many perks compared to others

    Advice to Management

    Stop the politicking
