Training Deployment Manager (Former Employee) – Indian Hills, CO (Home) – April 17, 2018
Trusted to work at home and manage employees globally, working hours to match other countries, as needed. I learned to set aggressive, challenging targets and to let my employees talents soar and trust them to make their deadlines, while checking in weekly to see where they were at and to provide help and/or support as needed from the strong team environment I created. We always had each other's back. Workplace culture emphasized a strong work ethic, honesty, trust, goal-oriented, supportive environment. Hardest part of the job was communicating remotely with different cultures. The most enjoyable part of my job was team-building and seeing my team blossom and grow and move onward and upward in the company.

Member of Technical Staff (Former Employee) – Naperville, IL – April 5, 2018
Reductions in work force are announced and completed several times throughout the year. Everyone in the targeted organization suffers. Everyone struggles during the period between the announcement and notification. After notification, those who are laid off must say good-bye and start a new career. Those who remain must pick up extra work.
Sr. RF Design Engineer Contractor (Current Employee) – Sunnyvale, CA – March 23, 2018
Poor management, hardware is full of bugs but the lead engineers are too full of ego to fix them. They are VERY late on delivering product. Expecting heads to soon. Software group/controller group may be the only group that is well managed/knows what they are doing. The have a "hope and wish" it works approach to hardware, don't know some fundamentals of board design. The daily stand up meeting is just the engineers making excuses of bugs and putting this off until later. The only design work actually have they have outsourced to Russia, that says a lot about their own confidence in their engineers.
Good location in downtown sunnyvale, snacks and free coffee.
