Well-paying, fast-paced, but no balance
Senior Manager (Current Employee) –  Arlington Heights, ILJune 23, 2016
Projects have rather short timelines, often consuming lots of hours. However, most people are easy to work with and are equally driven. Management tends to be disorganized and chase after the market, but also has a track record of success.

Torn with politics, ordinary employees crushed in the process, first class product potential
Staff SW Engineer, Architect (Current Employee) –  San DiegoApril 26, 2016
Company was at one extreme with the owner walking bare feet on the premises, talking informally about technology and specialty areas supporting the main CMOS space.
Now the leads/managers in many areas are typical corporate officers, not much technical depth, but a lot of politics and power plays.
Pros
Product potential is high
Cons
Not a good working environment for enjoying and flourishing as a technical person

Good culture, good place to work learned a lot at the lab, great people to work with, etc. Unfortunately due to Peregrine's Reduction in Force Event many employees, including myself, lost out jobs.

Pay is extremely low for the job.

Benefits are great, but unless you're a part of the good ole boys network you can forget about advancement at this company.
Pros
Free Bagels every friday
Cons
Low balling on pay, too good oleboyish for my taste.
