    Pros

    I've worked with awesome guys small team of systems analysis, supported other engineering and production teams. The guys I've worked with were very supported with family emergency and open to job training opportunities. When my dad was sick and was diagnose at severe stage of cancer, I had to be on call 24/7 for family emergency my working hours were allowed to be flexible. The best areas to work is Final Test and Engineering.

    Cons

    In an operator view, Fab production managements play too many politics games, is power trip and pick favoritism. They are not supportive and the people culture environment is to tense. They do not give the operators the empowerments and the flexibility to become more of a team player. They tend to over us COMMAND and CONTROL leadership styles.

    Advice to Management

    Fab management leadership style "COMMAND and CONTROL" is the old legacy. They should give their operators the empowerment to work more freely and soon the output results you need will be at your dream.
    Fab management should learn the leadership style with Final Test management.

    I worked at TriQuint full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Average pay and benefits. If you have to live in or are ok with Florida, it might work if you lower your standards. They don't sweat training, safety, protocol, cleanliness, 5s, organization, pass downs, or good documentation. Wait, maybe these are cons! You will find some decent people but they unfortunately were not in my immediate work area.

    Cons

    It's not a real fab; 4 inch wafers. You find yourself stuck in the early 1990's. One story and not the normal three stories of a real, world class fab. A few tools are somewhat modern but you're mostly stuck in last century. Biggest problem is people. The equipment "technicians" are mostly former operators or process techs would lack the pedigree of a real tech that can truly diagnose and fix problems. Fortunately for them there is heavy reliance on a couple equipment vendors; problem being that they aren't so sharp either. They sure think highly of themselves though. The "engineers" might be decent techs at a real fab; key word there is "might". The poor engineer has to have his hand in every pie since he has to compensate for lack of quality technicians....ie do not think for yourself and check with him for any decision, action plan, or anything. They are not used to having new people come on board; you will not be warmly welcomed or given good training or orientation. Those folks are too busy web surfing, talking about their weekend, etc. Technicians sit in and are part of the interview process of prospective techs, engineers, and even managers. Since many have never been in a real fab, they are clueless on asking proper and relevant questions. And it emboldens them & makes them feel important. Needless to say, only locals or people looking to escape a different TriQuint fab are going there. And there is the good 'ol boy system. A PhD working for a guy lacking a 4 year degree simply due to that guy knowing someone up the chain somewhere. That "guy" is making some bad decisions and of course he thinks he's a god. English is not the dominant language in the hallways. Operators are mostly temps. Too many older, heavier, lazier people for my liking.

    Advice to Management

    Hopefully the Florida "fab" gets closed as part of the merger with RFMD. Expanding that dump at high cost while retaining that group of employees is not a good plan. Maybe the designers on the second floor are doing good things, but that first floor fab is a mess. Consider moving operations to a real building in a city where there is real talent instead of having to import that talent to central Florida (oh by the way, a pretty shady place).

    Pros

    Good pay, great Benefits, wanted to retire here

    Cons

    Cannot believe how I was treated just because of one person in Management! In 6 years 6 Perfect reviews, 5 nice raises(1 year none but still received stock options), Company turns a Blind Eye to its own "Code of Ethics" allowing managers to be in direct supervision over family members!

    Advice to Management

    Follow your own guidelines because one day you will have to answer to a higher authority.
