Engineer (Current Employee) – Greensboro, NC – March 11, 2018
Fast paced high tech firm, cutting edge technologies. There aren't many semiconductor manufacturers in NC so this was a great place to work. The company has decided to sell the NC manufacturing operation and the future is unknown for the facility and the employees who work there.

The company has a relaxed workplace and management cares for the well being and advancement of their employees. There are a lot of intelligent people there and with each new product we are continuously learning new ideas and ways of improvement.

After 4 years of working of this job, it becomes your life. You spend 12 hours a day with coworkers. Most times it is very enjoyable. Other times there is a so much competition that people will go out of their way to make up a lie to not have themselves fired. If you have a "lead" that does not like you, consider yourself fired because management will go along with anything they have to say. The company name changed, work activities stopped, layoffs every couple months. Used to be a great place to work.
Qorvo has cutting edge IC designs and R&D. They really do build cool products that power a lot of awesome technology we use every day. However Qorvo builds these products like it's the 1990s. They are way behind the times internally and things can move slowly. If you're someone who likes to push forward and be utilizing best practices this isn't the place to do that.
Qorvo in my experience has a healthy work/life balance and gives generous PTO time. Management and coworkers have always been generally pleasant and easy to work with.
Exempting IC/RF designers I would not rate Qorvo as a place for career advancement or to get experience with best in class tools / processes for your job. This place has historical roots in defense industry and you can feel it. Slow moving, resistant to change, consistently uses old processes and tools. If you are new graduate to less than 10 years experience I would avoid this place unless you are RF design or applications engineer.
Overall it's not a bad place to work but you may end up bored or frustrated more often than you'd like unless your in a few specific positions.
Culture of blame shifting. Management constantly deceives or misdirects subordinates whilst engaging in Nepotism. The ability to advance is directly tied to how obsequious one can be and the culture of blame or deflection yields dissatisfaction in those who want to work towards a greater goal

Management is not qualified to be in the position of management. They pretend to care about you as a person, but really they don't. Human Resources is bi-partisan, they don't really listen to you if you have a complaint, they take sides and show favortism and your just another thorn in their side if you speak out. Working conditions are very stressful, you feel as if your being watched or monitored constantly. If you have a issue with a employee that is on management's favorite list, don't dare complain because it will just open the exit door for you. If they offer you a severance package and you don't accept it, they will just terminate you on the spot, treat you terribly and have you escorted off property. Over all it's the worst place I ever worked.

Qorvo is an amazing company to work for. I learned so much in about the year I was assigned there. The management I had was great and very hands on. They care about their employees, and value good work ethic.
employee appreciation, they celebrate your birthday, positve, great learning environment
Very diverse workforce (both in culture and age) of highly motivated and intelligent professionals. Many opportunities to learn and contribute to state-of-the-art RF modules for mobile and infrastructure/defense applications.
Test Engineer (Former Employee) – Greensboro, NC – December 8, 2017
Poor raises, while upper management gets large raises, and also with 0 cost stock options. overall benefits are not bad. Management does not seem to have a clue, having purchased other companies, and building a new building, and then layoffs so that building is not filled.
