    Pros

    One of the best, motivated, and capable groups of people I have worked with. Focused on design and improvement of an ever-changing and cutting-edge product line. It is a neat to see your design get mass-produced and put into millions of handsets. I really value the engineering discipline and collaborative environment. Good opportunities to try different things and engage in all aspects of the design. Thoughtful safety measures and and flexible work environment in post-Covid world.

    Cons

    Benefits have been getting more expensive (e.g. medical insurance) the past few years but this seems to be across the board.

    Pay is decent, not much else!

    Pros

    Pay can be above average for the area, but that depends on the market at the time of hire. Standard Benefits.

    Cons

    Warehouse facilities, very spartan. Minimum bathroom facilities for the amount of people working there. No upward mobility AT ALL in 99% of jobs!

    No innovation

    Pros

    Somewhat stable environment as far as job security, but not much more than that.

    Cons

    Lower than industry standards pay. One director is managing 20 direct reports and afraid to relinquish any authority. Upper management never expresses appreciation for all the hard work. But, I am sure their HR will respond and say, "we pay what the industry pays" ..I dare you to check how many employees are leaving due to low pay.

    Pros

    Helps to develop troubleshooting and communication skills. Also a great way to learn more about the semiconductor industry.

    Cons

    Long shifts (twelve hours), minimal formal training, and expected to work any holiday that falls on your schedule. HR lies and says that the company closes for the week of Christmas, but you will be expected to work. Was told that there would be opportunities to be more involved in the engineering side of things but it was an empty promise.
