    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!


  2. "Sr. System Admin"

    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 a year)

    Pros

    Really nice people, great team spirit! Lots of knowledge to be gathered and lots of people willing to help. A really good place to grow your ASIC skillset. No work schedule (can work from home or office at whatever hours you like as long as your job is done properly)

    Cons

    Not having a set work schedule can also be a not so good thing meaning you can have work to do late at home or in weekends or vacations!

    Advice to Management

    Keep it up!

    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.
