    I have been working at eSilicon part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Free drinks. Cheap snacks. Everyone is really nice. Casual work environment. You can learn a lot as a lower level employee. Easy to get to-it's right off of the freeway.

    Cons

    Pay is a little lower than my last job. They also recently discontinued having free lunches on Fridays. Boooooooo!

    Advice to Management

    Keep having the Friday lunches!

    I have been working at eSilicon full-time

    Pros

    I have 20+ years MS Windows experience and also a very dedicated system admin. Looking for a new opportunity to apply what I have learned the past years.

    Cons

    working in a company for over 15 years makes me too comfortable in one place. Not much chance to work on unix/linux side is also one thing that I missed due to division of duties.

    Advice to Management

    I am a very dedicated employee who works hard and eager to help users to get their jobs done. With my experience and eager to learn attitude, I will fit in different environments in this fast moving IT industry.

    I have been working at eSilicon full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    eSilcion has a great family-like environment; the people are talented and passionate about the work that they do. Technology we work on is interesting and benefits are good. Love my team.

    Cons

    Old-fashioned mentality, not really agile. Has potential to be a great employer, but lacks an overall attractive work culture/atmosphere due to constant budget cutting.

    Advice to Management

    Employee morale is important! Young talent is key for bringing in new ideas and providing succession.

    I have been working at eSilicon full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    - Good working environment
    - Talented co-worker
    - High health benefit
    - Very good salary
    - No politic crap
    - Fun!

    Cons

    - Some managers don't know how to manage
    - No or very limited overtime bonus
    - As above, overtime is a must, nearly 1 week every month
    - No training program, sometimes no career path (even thought CEO, HR keep talking about this) unless you create one yourself
    - After working here, you barely be confident of yourself in the market
    - No experts that can give you a big picture: What/How customer really use out product, what is the potential issues, what upper system looks like, etc.
    - No RnD, like "if it's not broke, don't fix"; sometimes this is not a good idea

    Advice to Management

    Clean off bad managers, don't promote people just because they have worked for many years.
    Real career path & training please.
