Internal Recruitment Director (Current Employee) – Santa Clara, CA – November 29, 2017
MACOM has never had a presence in Silicon Valley and is completely unaware of the competitive nature when it comes to compensation. They refuse input and basically dismantled the company in order to get a PAM-4 chip. I was promised a bonus stock package due to my contributions. However that never materialized. The person that hired me left as well as all the upper management whom I had excellent relations with. After the acquisition it feels like you were being bullied on a daily basis.

Senior Financial Analyst (Former Employee) – Santa Clara, CA – August 23, 2016
This company I would recommend for short term but not long term. It is not a good company for growth long term. My co-workers were pleasant to work with and culture was friendly. The most enjoyable part of the job was a relaxed atmosphere. The hardest part of the job was the new team was not cohesive and supportive of long term success within company. There were not a lot of mentors.
