      Pros

      The work is interesting and fulfilling and my manager is invested in me.

      Cons

      Victor Peng is a slave to Wall Street. Expect compulsory vacation as a cost saving measure, and slashed bonuses while dividends are increased

      Pros

      Used to be a great place to work for. Great benefits and salary compared to many other companies.

      Cons

      Sadly went downhill. Staff were not appreciated and it was expected to work crazy hours. No career development unless you were taken under wing of someone who liked you and pushed you in front of higher management.

      The culture has taken a huge U turn with the new management...

      Fun job with smart people, but does bare minimum to retain talent

      Pros

      - Work with some of the smartest people in their field - Good work life balance, depending on team - Work is challenging and interesting

      Cons

      - Promotions are few and far between, even if you're told that you're a top performer for years - Compensation and benefits could be better, but they're decent for a semiconductor company. However with the AMD buyout, it's possible it will get worse. - Work life balance can be terrible depending on your team. If you're in the US you're probably okay, but most teams in Hyderabad seem to work very long hours

      Employee oriented company but abundance of work

      Pros

      HR tries to become an employee -oriented company with sharing as much company business direction as it could to be transparent. Involves employees from all levels to communicate the company's latest status relevant to growth and direction. Above average benefit packet, e.g. 401K matching, medical insurance, etc.

      Cons

      The company is in a growing phase with new products and needs more improvement on the structure. Short-staffed and always abundant work to do.

      Pros

      Good culture, work life balance, good gym and nice campus. worked here for three years and so far so good. Like my manager

      Cons

      It's hard to get acknowledged or promoted. The compensation and salary is ok, though I believe other companies pay more.
