    I worked at RFMD full-time

    Pros

    People were great. RFMD knew how to manage customers and customer relationships. Had a great process for preparing for external customer meetings.

    Cons

    R&D did not bring product to market in a timely manner. Too many meetings and group think. Some of the senior managers need to be replaced.

    Advice to Management

    Make some changes in the R&D and listen more to people with customer feedback.

    All the biz units I experienced are full of talented engineers. Work and life balance couldn't be better.
    This company will do better after the merger with Triquint.

    Had no opinions for cons.

    Strong company, flexible hours. Most of the people who work there are extremely nice and fair.

    Off-hours work. So spread out internationally that you have to support many time zones.

    Pros

    Technical talented people, benefits, competitive salary,

    Cons

    RFMD culture doesn't seem likely to survive in the more political, aggressive, bureaucracy of Triquint. The merger of equals has one side imposing their will, and power. It remains to be seen what will end up being the new normal. With more Triquint employees, even with the RFMD CEO at the helm, RFMD values of respect, inclusion and individuality seem to be lost in a power struggle to make Qorvo the new and improved Triquint.

    Advice to Management

    Take care to shape the culture that will ultimately bring about the most success for the organization. Don't let behaviors that don't support the brand that you are creating to establish a hold in these early days. Then people will have to decide what they can and cannot live with in the company.
    To Triquint: Don't mistake our civility and kindness for weakness. Lots of talented people will be lost and you will be left trying to pick up the pieces. Turnover costs money.

  8. "Work Environment"

    I worked at RFMD full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    RF's core business is inventing and creating really cool communication technologies. It was exciting to be around that.

    Cons

    At all the other companies I've worked for, my managers ranged from "pretty decent" to "pretty great". They cared about empowering their staff to do great things. At RF, my line organization up to the senior management level was petty, dishonest, and didn't understand the work their organization was supposed to be doing. I saw managers berate staff in front of large groups over absurd accusations made-up on the spot, or yell personal insults. (Some that come to mind - "you're incomptent", "you are trying to sabotage this project"). Numerous, coordinated visits to HR asking for help did nothing. More than half the people on my team quit in the span of a few months, all citing the same problems. Sadly, I would never recommend RF to anyone as an employer.

    Advice to Management

    Have external HR consultancies come in and look at the effectiveness of IT's org structure and its leadership.
