Friendly environment. Great place to learn
Staff Software Engineer (Current Employee), San Jose, CAJuly 14, 2013
Pros: friendly enironment. great place to learn. flexible hours
Cons: difficult to grow
Microsemi has a great culture and friendly environment. Cross-functional teams are easy to work with and so are the co-workers. Everyone works together to meet the company goals. Microsemi growth currently is all in India, so it's difficult to grow in this company. The company itself is not growing locally, therefore you will reach a plateau at some – more... point. – less

Company on Verge to becoming a big player in the Aerospace Industry
HR Coordinator/Compensation Analyst (Current Employee), Aliso Viejo, CAJanuary 24, 2013
Pros: constant learning and great manager
Cons: long commute and lack of benefits due to being a temporary employee.
Microsemi is a place where an employee can learn the core competencies of a job and gain the opportunities to grow within the organization.

I learned most of my compensation abilities in this role without any previous experience. Through mentoring and guidance, I have become proficient in gathering surveys and analyzing the data to gather the knowledge – more... needed to provide recommendations to upper management in a timely fashion.

The hardest part of the position is dealing with constant revamping of projects in short notice. Although hard, it is very rewarding once the job is completed. The most enjoyable part of the position is learning more about the compensation aspect of human resources and seeing the recommendations you provided lead to decisions being made. – less

Decent company if you are one of the "right" people.
Supervisor (Former Employee), Scottsdale, AZSeptember 25, 2012
Pros: most weekends off, advancement opportunities, flexible hours
Cons: have to be one of the gang to get anywhere, hard work (above and beyond) not rewarded
Many people working at Micro were very hard workers. This encouraged the management team to just dump more on that person. Work not evenly distributed, bad workers just "hidden" in another area - not disciplined or removed. Friends and family advanced faster, (whether they performed well or not) than people who were hard workers only. Hours are good, – more... no work most weekends. Hours could be flexible depending on your boss. – less

I'd go back there in a hot minute but I think things ran their course and possibly rubbed the 1 person the wrong way.

A combination of old silicon technology and novel hexagonal Si Carbide HEXFET technology.
CVD Engineer (Former Employee), Bend, OregonMay 28, 2012
Pros: bend is beautiful.
Cons: the work environment is not professional.
This is a company with some really wonderful people and some that are not so. The HEXFET technology is really fascinating. It has a larger bandgap. It is harder to oxidize, diffuse and implant. They have one implanter with a heated end station(1000 degrees C).
This is a company for those who are late in their careers as was I when I joined. There is – more... virtually no opportunity for upward advancement.
In fact if you indicate a desire for advancement it will be viewed as a negative. This is true of the Bend facility. Microsemi is a collection of acquisitions. – less
