Overall a great place to work. An employee could possibly get involved with many aspects of the company and gain invaluable experience.
Principal Product Development Engineer (Former Employee) – Chandler, AZ – September 1, 2013
For me, my typical day was ensuring that my new product development schedule specifics were being met by my New Product Development Team(s). This meant interfacing with Wafer Fab, Design, Assembly, Testing, Yield Enhancement, Failure Analysis (when needed), Application Engineering, and Marketing to make sure there were no issues that would negatively impact my projected "product-to-market" schedule.
I learned that if you want the product to be robust at the end, you must control every aspect of the building block components up front and stand your ground on what these should be and base the decision on facts and data and not soley on a favorite direction or direction.
My immediate Management was fine for the most part but sometime they tend to forget schedules were mere projections and not absolute entities. (More realistic flexibility was needed).
The co-worker were fine to work with (some more pleasant than others).
The hardest part of the job was trying to deliver on an important milestone but given only limited resources.
I really liked the challenge and seeing my finished products sell and make millions of dollars for the company.
needed more equipment in some areas to accommodate the growing number of engineers and requests.
