    I worked at TENSORCOM full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Challenging job and cutting edge technology. Friendly working environment. New management is better than before. Tapeout comes every few month. Hopefully, production is going to be ready soon and going well. No more yelling. I'm looking forward Tensorcom will become a well established company.

    Cons

    Intense work environment because we are small company and limit resource. However, scheduling is much much reasonable, efficient and more manageable on project.

    Advice to Management

    Top management need to have fast response to our potential customer inquiries.

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

    Pros

    This company was established to develop the next generation super high speed wifi chip. This is a good place for passionate engineers to polish their skills in a cutting-edge project. And the project is going very well. Employees will be able to enjoy the fruits of victory soon.
    Management have been completely changed. The new top manager is very friendly. I feel much more relaxed now.

    Cons

    This is not a place to enjoy retirement life like what you can do in some well-established companies. Tape-out comes every a few months.

    Advice to Management

    The HR system has to be improved a lot, like performance evaluation, salary adjust and promotion. It's very frustrating if your actual level and contributions can't be recognized.

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

    Pros

    Challenging work
    Cutting edge 60 GHz/WiGig technology
    Interesting collaborative projects with customers' and their applications of Tensorcom's 60GHz technology
    Much, much improved work environment. Gone is the Steve Jobs school of management.

    Cons

    Tensorcom is an intense place to work. It has to be, because it is competing against the likes of Qualcomm/Wilocity, Broadcom, Intel, and Panasonic. All companies with far bigger budgets and staffs. If it weren't for the intense focus, hard work and dedication of Tensorcom's loyal employees, Tensorcom would not be the leader in having the lowest power consumption, single chip solution for the 60GHz/WiGig market.

    Advice to Management

    The new management team has fostered a work environment that is more conducive to creative engineering solutions, and more open communications between engineering disciplines within the company. The future Success or Failure of the company will depend upon whether this new environment is allowed to flourish or wither away.

    Pros

    Innovative technology, good salary & chance to learn

    Cons

    Sell your dignity & professionalism if you want to work for this company. Yelling, swearing, sending someone home on weekends to pick you up are norms in this company. They stole softwares too, no professional or personal ethics.

    Advice to Management

    You can't run this company like this for too long.

    I worked at TENSORCOM full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Cutting edge technology. Spoiled engineers.

    Cons

    Management team is running the company in chaos. The company doesn't have any solid plan on the business. Every single decision is to be made only by CEO, who is humiliating employees all the time. Management team is treating employees as slaves who are willing to do anything asked for money.

    Advice to Management

    Please, don't mess up the engineering.

    Pros

    Small & dynamic company environment with lot of opportunity to learn. Good salary.

    Cons

    Extraordinarily abusive & insulting. Can only work if you don't care about your dignity & professionalism. No professional or personal integrity in the management. Employees are treated like slaves. If you don't attend calls on weekends, someone will show up at your house to pick you up. It's simple harassment.

    Advice to Management

    Try out some work & professional ethics - will work too & will work better than you think.
