    Pros

    Company encourages employees to advance and move to different departments if they wish. Good work-life balance.

    Cons

    No longer has a small-company / start-up culture. Pay not as high as some competitors. Not all employees treated the same - VERY cliquey. Different expectations for same position depending on your manager or work site.

    Pros

    I have been with this company for many years, and have seen many changes both Positive and Negative. Approximately 6 months ago they finally added a HR team member here in NBP that is caring, considerate, respectful, friendly, and most of all a great listener. She has reinvented the Open door policy that has been lacking for over a decade. She actually cares. She has addressed issues that have been happening for years, she has made our location happier, on a daily basis. She has adapted well and the employees appreciate and respond well to her. She actually helped make pancakes for all the employees, I’ve never seen our past HR doing anything like that in the past 15 years. She has earned the respect of many. She will talk to all pay grades, she remembers that we are all humans. Very refreshing. She is a good example of our Culture and Vision ideaology.

    Cons

    We need to make sure that we remember that the employees make or break a company. If we have a positive culture aligned with Work- Life balance it will be a win. The other HR ladies are rude, condescending at times, and only care about certain groups. Their door has always been closed to certain groups. In my opinion that they haven’t handled issues or concerns in a timely manner. Not consistent with who they discipline and terminate. Basically have set a don’t bother HR standard. They could learn a lot from Jen.

    Advice to Management

    Great hire with this one. Pay attention to the employees needs and desires, and One day we can be a good place to work!

    I worked at Skyworks Solutions full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    The biggest pro is that I do not have a lot to write for this.

    Always work to be done. You will have the same job for years. You really have to work hard for your money.

    Cons

    Pay is well below standard despite what the company says in their responses. Liam either has no idea what he is doing, or just doesn't care. I am hoping it is the former. The board of investors have turned this into a cash cow that they receive a steady income on. There was little to no room for advancement. There is a backlog of senior people waiting for a promotion, so if you are new in your career, look elsewhere.

    They want to hire the best, but on a budget. Long hours, 20 hour workdays are more common than 12 hour workdays. Before they can address work life balance, maybe address work/sleep balance. Employees are viewed as disposable my management, and treated that way. a 100 hour workweek will barely get you a marginally satisfactory rating on your review and you will still be behind, but hey maybe you will get that 0.7% annual cost of living increase.

    This should really just be a stopgap between real careers.

    Advice to Management

    Fire Liam and move on. Treat your employees like people and not work horses. Be motivated by something other than money.
