    I have been working at Silicon Labs full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Silicon Labs has the best technology, best people, great benefits, competitive pay, merit based rewards, tangible business success, strong product pipeline, rigorous R&D investment, and is growing. It is a great combination!

    Commuting into downtown is highly variable, but Silicon Labs offers flexibility in work hours and many methods for working remotely.

    Continue the hard work of prioritizing investment into the areas you identify have the most potential both short and long-term.

    Pros

    Great people and culture, overall a great place to work. The release cycle can be a bit stressful at times but you couldn't ask for a better group of smart and talented people to work with.

    Cons

    Sometimes the communication across sites spread around the world can be difficult. This has been made easier through collaboration tools in the recent past.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you are doing, delivering on your promises and goals and we'll make it to 1 Billion dollars soon.

    I worked at Silicon Labs full-time

    Pros

    Good place to get your feet wet. Nice coworkers. Central location. Local company. Decent work perks. Good health insurance.

    Cons

    If you are initiative with corporate politics; you will fit right in. Not very competitive compensation. Low chances of promotion due to exclusive veteran circles.

    Advice to Management

    Assign more constructive work rather than busy work during down times. Discoverer and recognize talent rather than dismissing potential assets to the company.

    Pros

    Outstanding company that regularly works to attract the best of the best. The engineers develop exceptional products that you are proud to market.

    Cons

    Sometimes hiring can be too homogeneous that doesn't recognize that you need a diversity of MBTI personality types to have a fully complimented team.

    Advice to Management

    Consider mapping company mission across multiple jobs and the MBTI personality that best accomplishes each part of that mission.
