    Pros

    Power managment chips is a profitable business sector

    Cons

    like most companies of similar size training is tied to senior managers and can take time, I mean time.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give people some training and make sure they get it

    I have been working at Dialog Semiconductor full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Paid training courses, many benefits and stock options. Some engineers are paid very generously. Most importantly, the company has a future.

    Cons

    Bad location (Swindon). Design engineers mostly do verification (unless you're a Principle Engineer) and learn little. The business (power management) is not very interesting. Large gaps in engineering salaries.

    I worked at Dialog Semiconductor full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Salary better than most competitors, offices are nice, some decent benefits.

    Cons

    -Very political and "cold", lots of back-biting.

    -Processes take a long time (training, for one).

    -Certain political players get all the good work and perks. Not good if not into politics - made me sick to see.

    -They retain poisonous employees who are either no good at their job, sow seeds of discord, or are very adept at playing the political game. Definitely favouritism.

    -Offices, while nice, are often lacking atmosphere.

    -Too many trying to climb the greasy pole.

    -Lack of communication in some offices.

    -Munich & Austrian offices over-worked.

    -Project management office treats you like a number.

    -Reverence for 'top designers' but couldn't see why; I saw several design flaws I would have changed.

    -Lack of interesting work for apps, design, and possibly other functions - heard this was particularly bad at Edinburgh site but can't confirm.

    -Analogue & Digital design was almost non-existent - across sites there is a lot of grumbling about designers being used only for verification purposes; design skills die out over time so not a good situation for the employee.

    -Personally, I left one of the German offices after just over a year for a LOWER salary at another company in Austria, but I'm getting better experience which will be of benefit in the long-run. Turns out money isn't everything.
