    I worked at Standard Microsystems full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    The people were like family. Looked forward working everyday.

    Cons

    Communication was a big problem. Even though I was promoted, there really wasn't any room for growth. The company was sold to Microchip Technology which, I was included in a lay-off which consisted of 95% of the company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    New ideas and improved software programs are usually an asset to a company.

    Pros

    SMSC had a good and diverse portfolio of products. When one product line was down, others were usually doing well and able to make up the difference. SMSC bought a few good and unique technologies but could never quite take advantage. Best thing about SMSC? It beats what came after it.

    Cons

    SMSC never acquired enough critical mass to get to the next corporate level. Over the last few years, it became obvious that upper management was more interested in making the company look good on paper rather than actually growing the business. When they finally found a buyer not sophisticated enough to tell the difference, upper management sold out the rest of us and made off with a small fortune.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Too late now, but you need to stop overfilling the ranks of upper management with your buddies from previous jobs.

    I have been working at Standard Microsystems full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Cutting edge technology with talented and good people. Great place to work as far as flexibility goes. Management willing to work with employees when it comes to personal life and work schedule.

    Cons

    Unstable and constant downsizing in New York. Employee's extremely insecure due to outsourcing and downsizing. Tough for employees to stay focused and engaged when they don't know if they will have a job quarter to quarter.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Due to instability, employees more worried about their job instead of just doing their job.
