    I have been working at Silicon Labs full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    -In a great market position and growing business
    -Excellent workplace accommodations and benefits
    -Smart, hard working people
    -Some unique, fun events that they try to engage employees

    Cons

    -Complete lack of on-boarding and training for employees. I brought this up to HR once and they didn't even listen, but instead just pointed me to technical speakers that they bring in about 1x per month.
    -No focus on developing leaders or managers. (They're more focused on doing building construction projects)
    -Very under-resourced company. They march to the beat of Wall Street, and don't hire enough people, so it is easy to get burned out. This is easy to see when you compare the revenue-to-employee ratio versus competitors.

    Advice to Management

    Hire more people and promote the people who deserve it. Don't be cheap. Listen to your employees about the real important stuff... not what kind of snacks are in the break room.
