    I worked at Silicon Image as a contractor (More than a year)

    Pros

    Just walking into this company, I felt positive about the people. They were nice, polite, friendly.

    Cons

    Management was a bit of a joke amongst employees. It was evident as to why. They company announced they were purchased in January of 2015.

    I worked at Silicon Image as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    People are friendly especially the managers are patiently guided and explain their requirement to assist your work. So it's easy to communicated and coordinated within groups.

    Cons

    There is nothing special I can think of for a 6 months intern there, maybe a better cafe and more upgraded utilities will inspire employees?

    Pros

    People, benefits and technology are silicon images strengths. Good position in the market as an innovative supplier. Promotes from within.

    Revolving door management and inability to make quick decisions. Many non core business distractions sapped both resources and time from strategic imperatives.

    I have been working at Silicon Image full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Lots of opportunity to make an impact on the products and the culture. There is some bureaucracy, especially in finance, but much more positive than negative aspects to this company. Recent improvements, like Unlimited PTO are great.

    Cons

    Too many layers of approval for some relatively simple tasks (ie. Purchasing)

    Advice to Management

    Pare down the need to have everyone approve everything - act more like a start up than a behemouth.

    Pros

    The direction, it has taken after Mr. Martino it has taken a positive direction. His management style is very good. As long as he is there, one can expect company will be doing good.

    Cons

    Employee training does not have high priority and employee herself/himself needs to do this on their own.

    Advice to Management

    Employee's evaluation system improvement will increase employees' productivity.

    Design contribution into HDMI , MHL Standards is SUPER!

    Advice to Management

    Bring Silicon Image to #1 leading company in semiconductor field... :-)
