Why am I reviewing a company for Indeeds benefit?
Materials Coordinator (Current Employee) –  Woburn, MAOctober 19, 2018
Its a great place to work although you can be undervalued pay wise. My particular job was overly stressful. My manager was the best I ever had, he will be missed most about my current workplace.

Management was horrible
Development Engineer (Former Employee) –  Cedar Rapids, IAJuly 17, 2018
They could not determine what the proper staffing levels were so layoffs were announced several times is a short period of time so no one really knew how safe their job was.

Good job, but it wears you down.
Fabrication Technician (Current Employee) –  Newbury Park, CAJune 20, 2018
You work 3-4 days a week in 12 hour shifts. Expect to take home around $2000 a month. You will not get federal holidays off, you will instead receive triple pay for that/those days. That being said, knowing that the company regularly boasts of revenues in the muliple hundreds of millions of dollars every quarter makes the level of pay a frequent topic of discussion among employees. It is still, however, a better paying job for those with no degree. You can request to work a lot of overtime if you want. Managers are considerate, communicative, and handle all issues professionally. Opportunities for advancement are present and do include raises. They'll pay for school if it's a relevant field to the company. Biggest issue, however, is injury. This is a fast paced assembly job, injuries of the hand, wrist, and arms are not uncommon from overuse.

Never work there
MANUFACTURING TECHNICIAN (Former Employee) –  Woburn, MAMay 28, 2018
Management is awful. Fab workers treated like zoo animals. When I first started, the company was great. It declined every year since then. I would not recommend this company to my worst enemies.
Cons
Just about everything

Operators and Equipment Techs are the best
Equipment Engineering Technician (Former Employee) –  Newbury Park, CAMay 23, 2018
Management needs a reality check. They just care about the stock holders. A lot of micro managing. They allow people to slack off and reward them for doing a good job. Then the hard working people have to pick up the slack and get treated bad.

Great place to work, hard production schedule
Manufacturing Technician 2 (Former Employee) –  Newbury Park, CAApril 17, 2018
Company was better than I expected from a corporation. Managers and engineers were great and very helpful. They always showed their appreciation for the hard working technicians.

Work schedule was very difficult, 4-3-3-4 which means 12-hour shifts 4 days for one week and 3 days the next week. Very quick paced and high output environment.

Only downside was several chismosas who would start drama. There were some bad techs who created a toxic atmosphere, but due to the high pay for an extremely low level job, they refused to leave.
Pros
Great benefits, approachable management, decent pay
Cons
Toxic co-workers, stressful production pace

More than 50% of volume requires problem solving
Accounts Payable Specialist (Current Employee) –  Woburn, MAFebruary 12, 2018
Extremely high volume with the majority unable to complete due to po issues, receiving issues, etc. Unfortunately it's an ongoing struggle to work cohesively with other departments that are crucial in resolving the issues that continuously prevent AP from performing at the highest level.

Very fast paced environment, fun and great if you are a work-a-holic type and the people are awesome and fun to work with
Sr. Talent Acquisition Associate (Former Employee) –  Newbury Park, CAJanuary 30, 2018
The environment is extremely fast paced and you work in an environment where the expectations and goals are set to standards that are almost and sometimes unachievable and unrealistic. There was no bonus paid out in 2016 to any employees because the corporate goal of accomplishment the Annual Incentive Plan was set to high and in 2017 most businesses fell very short and didn't reach the goals and at least some got a little bit of bonus but not the target amount when the company is saying how much money they are making and the stock went up to $117 at one point. The employees work extensive hours to not get rewarded and the pay is so low and not really market rate. The best part though is the people are really awesome and make the difference. There are super intelligent hard working, dedicated, and fun employees that work collaborative and are really down to earth. There are so many PhD's but you would never know who is or is not because of again down to earth. Loved the people and sense of humor and professionalism.
Pros

Cons
Corporate politics and management not doing the right thing in many areas

Engineering Technician (Former Employee) –  Cedar Rapids, IAJanuary 21, 2018
Great place to work the only downside is that some managers are pretty poor if you get a good one you'll stay forever if you get a poor one try and stick it out until you can move to a different position

It wasn't the company, it was my manager.
Engineering Technician (Former Employee) –  Newbury Park, CAJanuary 12, 2018
Skyworks Solutions is a solid place to work in terms of work/life balance as an HOURLY employee. It is a decent workplace in terms of learning more about your profession. Depending on who you work for in the company, it can either drain the life out of you or be something to look forward to on a Monday morning. Compensation needs a lot more attention. I was rather surprised to see the company doesn't honor some glaringly expected holidays (i.e. Martin Luther King Day). As much of an impact as MLK had on our history, I'm shocked Skyworks Solutions sees it as any other day on the calendar.
I've heard it before and I completely agree, many employees don't leave the company, they leave their manager. In many instances, I've found this to be very true. The best bosses I've ever worked for shake your hand and show appreciation, physically and verbally for the work you put in and staying late to get the job done. I don't think managers quite understand just how much of an impact showing appreciation can have. Monetary gratitude is always amazing, but, hearing a genuine "thank you! Keep it up" can move mountains.
Pros
Work/life balance. No particular dress code.
Cons
Compensation. Lack of leadership.
